Illinois Army National Guard Blackhawks Make Brief Stop at St. Louis Downtown Airport

By Carmelo Turdo
Three UH-60 Blackhawks from the 1st Battalion, 106th Aviation Regiment, Illinois Army National Guard based in Decatur made a short stop at the Jet Aviation ramp at St. Louis Downtown Airport Sunday.  The crews were conducting pilot proficiency flights wherein several flight crews per aircraft shared flying responsibilities for the various legs of the training route.  The Aero Experience was on the ramp to visit with the crews and bring you some up close views of the venerable Blackhawks (two "L" and one "A" model).  The Aero Experience conveys our appreciation to the Illinois Army National Guard and all U.S. military units throughout the world for their noble work keeping our nation safe.
