rf-47-nuts

THIS EVENT WAS THE DEBUT OF THE BELL 47 HELICOPTER ASSOCIATION. UNDER THE DIRECTION OF PRESIDENT CHARLIE HOLLINGER & JACK KELLY THE FOUNDATION WAS LAYED. AS USUAL PEOPLE COME AND GO. HOWEVER, THE ONES WHO STAYED HAVE MADE IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTIONS. MERCHANDISING WAS RAMPANT THAT DAY, ALTHOUGH TALK OF GROWTH WAS ON THE MINDS OF MANY.

SPECIAL THANKS TO THE AMERICAN HELICOPTER MUSEUM’S ANN BROWN FOR ALLOWING US TO APPEAR.

THE DEMO WAS FANTASTIC AS THERE WERE NO CORNERS CUT BY CHARLIE HOLLINGER. HE REALLY PUT THE 47 THROUGHT ITS’ PACES.

SOME OF THE FACES THAT WOULD RISE UP FOR LEADERSHIP ROLES ALONG WITH JACK & CHARLIE WOULD BE CURT FARGO, PAUL FALTYN, JEFF JANKOVICS, DANNY RODRIGUEZ, AND MEMBERSHIP DIRECTOR JOEY RHODES.
