Flickr Convoy: Navy Chopper Lands On Coney Beach

The US Navy paid a visited to Coney Island last Thursday on the eve of the Memorial Day weekend for the Fleet Week. The event is a celebration of various sea services. Sailors, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen from the US Navy and US Coast guard descend on various NYC locations to demonstrate their ships and air vessels for the public to view. The event, like the holiday is honor of the fallen soldier. As part of the public exhibit the chopper above that was on display on the Coney Island beach created quite a sand storm when lifting off.
