We arrived just in time to see the helicopter land in Riverview Park.
And the Pilots seat! He got to push all the buttons and move the controller.
Just giddy with excitement!
To top it all off, the local paper took a picture of Ben in the Pilot's seat. It was published the next day. You can see it here:http://www.statesmanjournal.com/article/20111111/UPDATE/111111025/Vets-honored-mid-Valley-events?odyssey=nav%7Chead
click the little 'more' button under the picture of the guy on the horse on the left hand side if you can't see Ben's cool picture.
The next morning, when I got Ben up, he said, "Ok. I'm ready to go fly my helicopter now."
It's so much fun to see my little boy that happy.
