Archive footage of TV News on February 17, 1974 when Robert K. Preston took off nightly at the controls of Bell UH-1B Iroquois "Huey" s/n 62–1920 from Tipton Field, Maryland, and landed it on the South Lawn of the White House.

Shortly before noon and despite five rifle holes, the helicopter lift off and flew back to base, was repaired and returned to service. It was later put on display at Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Willow Grove.
