Who We Stage Events For
As a 501 (c) (3) not for profit organization, we rely on your donations and sponsorships to support restoration projects and Chapter participation in community events. Our membership and our sponsors have donated thousands of man-hour in labor for Buc 3’s restoration and upkeep. Our members have also donated Vietnam War memorabilia which is also displayed with Buc 3.

We educate, enlighten, inspire, and listen. We display a Vietnam Veteran UH-1C Huey Gunship, Buccaneer 3 "Buc 3" as a hands-on interactive living museum. Buc 3 goes to local school educational programs. It is a non-flyable, fully restored, Vietnam Veteran, Huey gunship. This hands-on, living-history museum allows the students to sit inside and manipulate the flight controls as our Pilots answer questions about flying, missions, personal experiences, Army aviation, and the aviation career field.
