Army Aviation Heritage Foundation Gateway Chapter to Be Featured in Future PBS Special

By Carmelo Turdo
The Army Aviation Heritage Foundation Gateway Chapter, based at Creve Coeur Airport, will be featured in a future episode of Living St. Louis to be aired in the spring of next year. Crew Members of the KETC Nine Network, including award-winning Senior Producer and Director Anne-Marie Berger, visited the chapter's hangar Wednesday afternoon to learn more about the AAHF mission and the restoration to flight status of Huey 315. This additional coverage follows the chapter's appearance with an OH-58 Kiowa helicopter static display at the KETC Nine Network St. Louis premier of the film Take Me Home Huey during Veterans Day week. Berger and her crew will return periodically to record the continuing restoration and the first flight of Huey 315 as it unfolds.

In the following views, Anne-Marie Berger interviews Gateway Chapter President Mel Keith and Joe Steimann installs a jet engine exciter on Huey 315 for the cameraman. The Aero Experience will report more on the chapter's restoration and first flight of Huey 315 as it progresses.
