A chopper lands outside of Webster Elementary

Several dozen kids got a real life lesson about aviation on Wednesday.

For the past couple of weeks, fourth graders at Webster Elementary have been studying planes.

Therefore, teachers thought it would be neat to think outside of the box for the lesson.

With help from the Plymouth Airport, a pilot flew a chopper over the elementary and landed in the school's yard.

Tom Kinnaird, a teacher at Webster Elementary, said, “We hope that by giving them these opportunities, maybe it'll spark interest in them that'll last beyond fourth grade. Maybe some of them will want to grow up and be a pilot because of this kind of experience.”

This was the first time Webster Elementary used a chopper as part of its lesson.
