For several years Aviation Heritage Park has sought a Huey to symbolize  the courage of the warriors who served in Vietnam.  Recently the park has received word from the National Museum of the Air Force that the request has been confirmed.

The mission of Aviation Heritage Park is to assure that  military heroes’ stories are never forgotten. With your financial support, the BG Huey will display in AHP as that symbol of the warriors of Vietnam. The park will use it to tell the story of Huey pilot and Distinguished Service Cross recipient, Ray Nutter.

Our budget for this project is $15,000. That includes transportation of the helicopter from the Boneyard in Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, parts, extensive repairs, complete rebuild of the interior, and paint.

Aviation Heritage Park (AHP) is located on Three Springs Road in Bowling Green, Ky. The airpark is free, outdoors and open daylight hours year round. Currently the park has five military aircraft on display telling the stories of regional military heroes.
