In the 1950s, the U.S. Army conceived of a way to promote helicopters at national air shows across America - by square dancing with helicopters! 

A team of expert pilots was assembled to perform these incredible dancing stunts.  "Boy" helicopters were dressed in straw hats and corn-cob pipes and "Girl" helicopters were dressed in skirts and long hair made from mops.  They danced to classics such as “Turkey in the Straw" and “The Arkansas Traveler”.  

Their flagship performance at the 1956 National Air Show in Oklahoma wowed spectators as they danced their way into the hearts of the audiences - and into aviation history!
