ALPENA, MI – On Friday, September 26th, 2014 at 4:00pm a helicopter from Midwest Helicopter Airways from Willowbrook, Illinois lifted off from the parking lot of the Meijer property to get several heat and AC units to the roof of the building.
Originally the helicopter was to be in place at 2pm but was pushed back to 4pm to do safety checks
With several construction workers on the roof waiting for each unit to be put in place by the pilot, it only took about an hour for the units along with power supplies to be lifted into place.
On the ground surrounding the entire perimeter of the Meijer property were officials ensuring that unauthorized individuals were not entering the property during the operation for safety purposes.
Many were parked behind Denflo, Stanson & Sons and even across the street in the Walmart parking lot watching as the pilot maneuvered each unit into place.
