Vietnam Helicopter Restoration

In October 2016, Mahaffey Fabric Structures got the chance of a lifetime to contribute to the restoration of a Vietnam helicopter, the Huey, thanks to a close partnership with Bombardier.

To protect the historic Vietnam-era helicopter during the repairs, they designed a temporary hangar specifically to house the Huey.

The Mahaffey team decided to show their support for the project by donating the tent and labor to install it — at no cost to Bombardier or Marion County Vietnam Memorial, Inc. With an experienced installation team, the helicopter was completely covered and ready for restoration in ONE day.

Thanks to the quick turnaround time, the entire restoration from setup to removal took less than a week, and visitors can enjoy the newly restored Huey as they pay respects to the men who served.
