The newest of the new at the Delphi Airport

The United States’ newest Army Black Hawk helicopter, with only 270 hours on the engine, landed at the Delphi Municipal Airport Saturday to take part in the airport’s annual fly-in. Flown by Pilot in Command (PIC) Maj. Travis Ward, the helicopter, considered to be the most advanced in the U.S., is stationed in Shelbyville and is considered a utility craft. It can fly emergency missions in the states or can deploy overseas. The helicopter is considered a “lift aircraft” and can “sling” supplies to those in need in emergencies. Personnel opened the doors of the helicopter to allow visitors to sit in the seats and were available to answer questions and talk about their pretty bird! Comet photo by Debbie Lowe
