It was a successful turnout at the Redlands Municipal Airport on May 16th, for the local Airfest put on by Hanger 24. Helicopter 305 was delighted to be invited and well received by the children as they realized the same helicopter (but 301) was modeled for the Disney movie Planes II: Fire & Rescue.
