EIU ROTC Takes Off

Eastern ROTC conducted an Aviation Lab on Eastern’s campus Thursday, March 22, 2012. The cadets had a safety briefing before boarding the helicopter, and the lab consisted of three 10 minute flights around Charleston, Ill., in a CH-47 Chinook.

Cadets from the first group to go into the air exit the CH-47 Chinook after landing in the Tundra outside of the Tarble Arts Center.

Sgt. 1st Class Russell Bennett waits for cadets to enter the aircraft before taking off. Cadets were instructed on the proper way to exit the aircraft because of the heat from the engines and rotor blades.

Helmets lie on the ground before the Cadets pick them up to enter the aircraft.

The photographers I work with at The Daily Eastern News and the Warbler have been working on turning these assignments into something more than a photo or two in the paper. Keep on the lookout for more creative photo galleries, in-depth photo essays, and videos. For more photos of this event click here  to check out the Soundslide that I put together with Zachary White.

Beth Niemerg, a freshman biology major, served in the United States Army to pay for school. She decided to come back without any of her transferrable credits previously earned because she wanted her time at Eastern to be a new start.
