A crew from 5 State Helicopters, Inc. used a 1950s-era helicopter to remove and lift airconditioning units from the roof at Lee Intermediate School in Gainesville. Once on the roof, GISD maintenance crews planned to complete the installation of 24 rooftop units. The new units are designed to be efficient and help keep students cool while saving Gainesville Independent School District money. The operation got underway around 7:30 a.m. Monday.
