We Meet Again, Old Phriend

Air & Space Smithsonian - - Letters -

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.
