The Minnesota Historical Society has enlisted the help of 20+ veteran volunteers to help re-construct a model of a Huey Helicopter as part of their upcoming 1968 Exhibit. The exhibit chronicles the events of one of the most turbulent, volatile, and influential years in American history, and the helicopter model will serve as an interactive component documenting the Vietnam war.

Check out these behind the scenes production photos from our shoot at the MNHS on June 8th, 2011. More information on the exhibit and the Vietnam vets involved in the project to come on an upcoming episode of MN Original.
