A little over a week ago we received a call at Evergreen to expect 3 Blackhawk helicopters from Fort Lewis to be landing behind the space building. The 45 men landed, toured the museum, had lunch and were photographed in the Spruce Goose. It was a pleasure having them there and we welcomed the once in a lifetime opportunity to see these amazing helicopters in action!
This is the video I shot of all 3 helicopters leaving. It was the first time I had ever been that close to the rotor wash of such a large helicopter. I was almost blown over! What you can't see from the video is all of the guys waving to us!
