The UH-60 Blackhawk is the Army’s utility tactical transport helicopter, entering service in 1979 to replace the smaller UH-1 Huey of Vietnam-era fame. Courtesy of the Rhode Island Army National Guard and MIT Army ROTC, a pair of Blackhawks will land in Briggs field and be available for up-close inspection.

Their crews will be happy to tell you about the aircraft and answer your questions.
