DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — A historic helicopter made a landing into its new Miami Valley home Wednesday.

The HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter is from the 57th Wing at Nellis Air Force Base near Las Vegas and is now a permanent addition to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force.

In April of 2004, the chopper was sent on a mission to rescue five U.S. Army soldiers whose helicopter crashed during a sandstorm in Iraq.

The crew of the aircraft was awarded the Mackay Trophy for most meritorious flight of the year by an Air Force crew.
