  1. Whoever wrote this article needs to recheck his facts, the helicopter got shot down way before 1995… more like 1975… I think.

    I was told the helicopter crashed basically on the corner of Indiana and St. Lawrence just before we moved in to our house a block away and that was in 1976, so the story I heard may be wrong but the helicopter thing happened before then for sure.
