WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - A helicopter used during Hurricane Katrina relief efforts will touch down for the last time at the D.C. Armory on Wednesday.

The UH-1V helicopter is scheduled to be permanently mounted for display in front of the Armory when it arrives on a flatbed truck around 9 a.m. A crane will be used to lower it into place.

It was part of the D.C. Army National Guard inventory and was also used for border patrol before its retirement.
