SEATTLE, July 9, 2012--Seattle's only helicopter air show is a celebration of public service. On July 14 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. the Museum's parking lot will be filled with a variety of helicopters flown here for the American Heroes Airshow, "Courage at the Speed of Flight." Admission is free.
Visitors can see how helicopters play an important role in law enforcement, fire service, public safety, communications, national defense and homeland security. The American Heroes Air Show features static displays, special presentations and entertainment. Representatives from many organizations including local flight schools, Border Patrol, Search and Rescue units, and the U.S. Coast Guard will be available to answer questions. See helicopters like the Blackhawk flown by the U.S. Army 16th Combat Aviation Brigade, as well as those flown by Airlift Northwest, KING 5 TV and many others. Come early to see the helicopters land.
New this year, the air show will include a special U.S. Citizen and Immigration Service naturalization ceremony for members of the military, first responders and aviators who have applied for U.S. citizenship. The public are welcome to attend this patriotic event and witness people achieve their dreams of citizenship.
