Blackhawk Landing at School

Yesterday at school a blackhawk medic helicopter landed in honor of Veteran's Day. It was an incredible experience for everyone. The kids and adults were all so excited you could feel the energy! One of our 6th grade teachers whose son is the co-pilot of this brand new 18 million dollar aircraft organized the event. The guardsmen spoke with the students about dreaming big and making good choices in life. After we all got to look in the helicopter and ask questions about it. It weighs 17,000 pounds, can fly up to about 160 miles per hour, and carries 6 patients plus 4 crew members. I wish I could of gone for a ride!
