Community members toured the new LifeFlight Eagle ambulance helicopter base at Chillicothe Municipal Airport on September 16. Organization representatives and city of Chillicothe officials offered remarks during a brief program that was followed by a ribbon-cutting ceremony and a free lunch. The open house was a come-and-go event, and members of the public could get a close-up view of an air ambulance, visit with LifeFlight Eagle team members, and learn more about the organization. A bounce house and other inflatable recreation units were set up for youngsters' enjoyment. Individuals could also put on flight suits and have their pictures taken by the helicopter.
