AC DONATES GUN SHIP TO AIR & SPACE MUSEUM

The Amarillo College Technical Training Center is sending one it's oldest aircraft to be put on display at the Texas Air & Space Museum.

The Bell-47 Helicopter has been used to train students for manufacturing and maintenance purposes.

"Most of the public is going to associate it with M.A.S.H, as in the television show M.A.S.H, with the stretchers and the injured being carried on it," said Jim Faustina with AC's Aviation Maintenance Program. "But this helicopter was actually built, one of 83, by the army as an actual gun ship."

Amarillo college has loaned the aircraft for display in several events coming up in the next few months at the museum.

If you'd like to see the Bell-47 as well as several other historic aircraft, head out to the Texas Air & Space Museum at 10001 American Drive, from 9 - 4pm, Monday - Saturday, or give them a call at 355-9169.
