Veterans Reunion and Ride Event Hosted by Army Aviation Heritage Foundation Gateway Chapter
By Carmelo Turdo
The Army Aviation Heritage Foundation Gateway Chapter held their annual Gathering of Eagles Veterans Day event at Creve Coeur Airport on Saturday. Veterans of all eras and campaigns gathered for food, fellowship and the unmistakable sound of Vietnam-era Huey and Cobra helicopters overhead flown by fellow veteran crews along with a new generation of volunteers who keep the aircraft flying safely decades after their active service. Here we feature a Huey lift, Cobra fly-by and return of both aircraft to the fuel pumps. The Aero Experience thanks the Gateway Chapter members and all veterans who have served our country here and around the world.
