You are probably right because its easy to fly for 60 years when all you do if fly around the flag pole But I will appreciate the ride back after we take the last one to the bone yard

I was an FE on the Hueys at Yokota. Great to see these fine people helping the people of Japan during these hard times. I predict that when the last H-60 goes to the boneyard the crew will fly a Huey home. Long live the Huey
