Veterans attend helicopter reenactment at Waterfront Park

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB)--The Waterfront looked like a scene from the Vietnam War on Friday, but it was just a history lesson.

The Vietnam Helicopter Pilot Association brought helicopters to the area in honor of the traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall being in town this weekend.

Veterans shared their stories from the war.

We're told they all react in different ways to seeing the helicopters.

Uniformed infantry re-enactors also used two helicopters to stage a simulated "hot landing zone".

They showed how U.S. soldiers flew into combat.
