Vietnam-Era Helicopter

When the Dyersburg Army Airbase Veterans’ Museum in Halls, Tenn., needed a Vietnam-era helicopter transported from Arizona, it called FedEx. CEO Fred Smith, who had served in the Marines, agreed to donate transportation and logistics expertise.

The CH-46 U.S. Sea Night Marine Corps helicopter, which weighs 15,000 pounds and is 45 feet long, took three days to disassemble. It is one of only two of its kind available for public viewing.
