Restoration of the Vintage Piasecki Helicopter
Veterans and historians are asking for our fundraising help for this rare helicopter that was service during the Korean War. Piasecki HUP-2 is one of the last two Korean War era aircraft.
If the fundraising event is successful, the completely restored artifact would become a permanent on deck exhibit at San Pedro’s historic Battleship Iowa.
