LIGHT HORSE LEGACY
Working with the Glendale Veteran's community we always enjoyed bringing 62-2108 to Mayor Wier's event
The team; Scott Hurst, Dave Barron, Carl Long, Wilbur Hartle & Ron Dwight (minus Jake) who restored the UH-1H that saw combat in RVN This experienced team worked hand in glove with the Architects, Fabricators, Civil Engineers and City staff to bring Vance Wiley's concepts to Peoria.
Both the OH-58A and UH-1H (174) have been at the starting point of the walk. We are proud to attend each year
It is always our honor to participate with an interactive aircraft dispaly for the kids and adults to sit in and spark an interest in aviation.
Once again we brought in Commercial Artist Steve Maloney. The documentary and song Take Me Home Huey are also part of our project. Dave Barron's exhaustive research brought together the surviving crew and family members of the deceased who have formed a close and lasting bond. look for the film on PBS.
We are excited to support our home airport!!
LHL joins with the Frank Luke Museum to bring the aircraft to thousands of watchers each year.
In 2014 and 2015 we supported the nephew of Gary Dubach KIA RVN 14Feb1968 at the Stop & Shop surplus store owned by Sean Hewitt. 9333 East Main Street Mesa, AZ 85207
Huey 174 was the guest of the EAA Museum in 2017. Light Horse Legacy was front and center during the entire run of Airventure 2017.
We were honored to display 174 and present the movie Take Me Home Huey at the Museum for Fatherfest. The crew of 174 spoke at each showing. LHL presented the Museum with a McCullough J-2 gyrocopter donated by Marv Wessel.
LHL hosted the crew and families of Medevac 12 for a long overdue Welcome Home parade
