The Helicopter that Brought News of Statehood to Hawaii… The Video

*Statehood Day bump*

Just saw this cool clip on youtube:

I was just a little girl of 4 years when my mother took this movie of a helicopter landing in Honolulu with news of statehood for Hawaii. In 2009, it will be the 50th anniversary of statehood. My dad, a sailor with the US Navy was stationed in Hawaii for several years, both before and after statehood. Warning- little haole girls cannot hula.”
