Veterans Day Salute: National Guard Troops Deploy from Farmington, MO Regional Airport

By Fred Harl
The Aero Experience salutes our armed forces on this Veterans Day holiday with a look at a recent training deployment of Army National Guard troops from Farmington, MO Regional Airport. The airport served as a convenient staging area for the Blackhawk helicopters to pick up their troops. Other U.S. Army helicopters, such as Lakotas and Chinooks, often stop there to refuel there throughout the year. Public Midwest Aviation assets, like Farmington, MO Regional Airport, are essential to support military training operations, and The Aero Experience was there to see them off and wish them well.
