Helicopter returns to Tuscaloosa Veterans Memorial Park

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) – An important piece of Tuscaloosa Veteran’s Memorial Park is back just in time for Independence Day.

The UH-1 Huey helicopter that normally sits on top of a pedestal in the park was returned Thursday. For the past two months, it was getting refurbished and repainted a medevac helicopter.

Hauling and reinstalling the chopper was quite an ordeal, but it was well worth it.

The process was made possible by donations from McAbee construction.
