What in the Helicopter?!

On a recent visit to the Tellus Science Museum in Cartersville, Ga., several St. George Village residents and staff enjoyed exploring the various special exhibits and permanent galleries that are housed in the 120,000 square foot world-class museum.

Pictured here, SGV driver Dave Fagerstrom and resident Jack Dudley admire a Bell Helicopter. The Bell is the first helicopter that Dave flew during his service in Vietnam as an Air Force helicopter pilot.

The Bell Helicopter is part of Tellus Museum’s Science in Motion Gallery, which explores the relationship mankind has with powered vehicles designed to increase the speed of travel.
