Long Description:
Dansk: Helikopter som forretningsskilt i Odenses gågade Kongensgade. Butikken tilhører idag Hama Sushi restaurant. Indtil 2018 tilhørte butikken Air Pub, der også hængte den ikoniske helikopter op over pubbens indgang i 1988. Blandt Odenses befolkning er helikopteren unik og legendarisk og de er glade for at helikopteren stadig hænger i gaden, hvor den er blevet et vartegn. Helikopteren var opbevaret i hangar i mere end 20 år efter et styrt i Jylland i 1966.
