11th Annual “Rotors Over Mentone” event. It will take place on Saturday, Sep 12th at the Lawrence D. Bell Aircraft Museum in Mentone, IN. Details can be found at: http://www.bellaircraftmuseum.org/ .
This year’s annual “Rotors Over Mentone” Fly-In event will celebrate the rich history of the city of Mentone, Indiana. Our guest speaker will be R. J. Hill.
Johnny Walker and his American Huey 369 folks will again be joining us for membership rides. We also will have Cleveland Helicopter Service on hand offering rides in a Robinson R44 or Enstrom model.
Our hope is that the weather will work out for us like it did last year and for helicopter pilots wishing to fly can make it out. If we could get one or possibly two 47s from northern Illinois, Indiana, or the southwest Michigan region, that would be great. We are hoping the Indiana State Police will bring their Bell Jet Ranger out this year. They couldn’t make it last year. However, we did get a visit from a family in a Bell 407, which was nice to have at the event.
