Vintage Chopper To Land In East Texas

A piece of American history will be in Tyler Saturday. A Vietnam era Huey-091 helicopter will be shown off tomorrow at Tyler Pounds Regional Airport.

An educational program kicks off at the historic aviation museum at 10:30 with the helicopter set to land around 11:00.

The museum is located on Dixie Drive, just South of Hwy 64.

Tyler is the first stop in a nationwide tour of the chopper, which will eventually go on display at the Smithsonian Museum.
