A helicopter bound for Tulsa’s Veterans Day parade was knocked off its trailer on highway 75 Monday morning.
FOX23 learned from the Tulsa County Undersheriff that a cable came loose and one of the helicopter's blades was caught on an overhead sign.
Veterans transporting the helicopter told FOX23 the chopper saved a lot of lives during the Vietnam War.
“Of all the aircrafts I worked on in 20 years, this was the best helicopter, best aircraft in my opinion. It meant everything, I spent a tour in Vietnam on an H model just like this,” said Master Sgt. Douglas Hill.
It took crews about two hours to clean up the wreck. Traffic got back to normal just before noon.
