We Meet Again, Old Phriend
The Phrog went out in style (Viewport, Aug. 2015). At the farewell fly-in on August 1 at the Steven F. Udvar-hazy Center in Virginia, Bunu no. 153369 made a low pass, an Osprey (the Phrog’s replacement) on its wing. Afterward, the CH-46’S logbooks were presented to General Jack “Zorro” Dailey, director of the National Air and Space Museum, which will display 153369 at the Udvar-hazy Center.
Upon my return home, I checked my logbooks and found that, after 26 years of flying CH-46S, I made my last flight as a Marine Corps pilot on May 8, 1990, in that exact aircraft.
