The three participating Blue Hawaiian Helicopters pilots are U.S. Veterans Gardner Brown, Kristi Hicky and Loren Sampson.The return of the survivors and their families to Pearl Harbor was made possible through the U.S.S. Arizona Final Salute campaign that raised more than $100,000 through donations. In addition to bringing the survivors and families back, the funds is being used to create "The Final Salute" documentary project aimed at preserving the historic moments surrounding the 75 th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. The campaign is a joint effort between eight families of Arizona survivors, three passing away in the last two years.
