Helicopters large and small, flying demonstrations and ribs attracted a crowd to the Goshen Airport on Saturday, June 21. The third annual Rotors ’n Ribs helicopter fly-in took place under partly sunny skies.
Attendees could check out helicopters up-close, purchase a ride on Vietnam era war birds, eat ribs or hot dogs or pizza, and watch a simulated air evacuation by a medivac helicopter.
According to Goshen Airport manager Randy Sharkey, the event attracted between 2,500 and 3,000 people. New events included a helicopter parade and the EMS evacuation demonstration. About 40 helicopters, large and small, were present. Three medi-vac helicopters are included in that total.
