Happenings at the Museum in picture
UH-1B has arrived at Firebase Romeo Charlie
In 2013, a UH-1B Huey helicopter was donated to the Museum by the San Bernardino County Sheriff's department. The Sheriff's Department used the UH-1B as a rescue training platform. For the last year and a half our Restoration Department and Curatorial Department has painstakingly cleaned out “inches” of gunk that was accumulated over the 40 plus years it sat atop a 30 foot tower at the Rialto Airport. They manufactured parts and pieces that were missing and discovered that it was a Vietnam War combat veteran.
Here are some before and after pictures.
