Mahaffey Fabric Structures, the leading provider of temporary fabric structures and shelter solutions in the United States, recently installed a temporary hangar for Bombardier’s full-scale restoration of a Huey Vietnam-era helicopter. The Huey is on display at Marion County Vietnam Memorial in Fairmont, West Virginia.
“After learning more about the history of the helicopter and the significance of the Memorial, we were honored to help Bombardier,” said Kevin Ponder, project manager at Mahaffey Fabric Structures. “We truly value partners like Bombardier, and we always try to help when asked. We are proud to have played a small part.”
Mahaffey installed a 20-foot by 50-foot temporary hangar from its MegaStructure Series, specifically customized to fit the Huey. The installation of the hangar was complete in one day, and less than a week later, the helicopter was fully restored to its original, wartime form.
