The 1,100 pound HPD helicopter from the police academy museum, having seen the 1952 patrol car being refurbished www.hpdblog.com/2009/08/facelift.html, was starving for a little attention itself and was ready for a move to new surroundings. Therefore, both the vintage patrol car and helicopter will soon be in the lobby at the main police headquarters at 1200 Travis for visitors to enjoy.
The movement of a full size helicopter was not an easy matter. However, with the help of C&H Rigging Services http://www.chrigging.com/, the helicopter is safe on the ground, and ready for the next part of it's journey. We would like to thank the crew for safely "landing" our helicopter in very tight quarters.
