Whiting hosts fly-in

NAVAL AIR STATION WHITING FIELD, Fla. – This base in Milton in Northwest Florida this week is hosting the 26th annual Naval Helicopter Association Fleet Fly-In. The four-day event, which began Tuesday, is designed to show students the aircraft they will fly when they go out in the fleet, and give them an opportunity to fly in the aircraft. More than two dozen Navy, Marine and Coast Guard helicopters are involved. Aerospace companies, including Lockheed Martin, Airbus, Bell Helicopter and Sikorsky, have displays at the event.
