CH-46, 1992, USS Suribachi ammunition ship. Brought the crashed CH-46 back to port. Note in pic #1, the co-pilot (H2P) still strapped in, and the crew chief hanging by his gunner's belt over the water.









They should work for EVERYONE now - Ed

I don't see the pics, but I think it might be buno 151953, which is an HH-46D and belongs to my last command HC-6. I would have to see the pics to be sure.

LOL, I always wondered why you had a "Jetphotos.net" Banner in your sig, Mike.

Well, that's where I have the pics hosted through, but sometimes it's working, sometimes not.

Currently under repair........

If you have not seen the picture it shows a banner for Jetphotos, if you have seen the picture it will show. I also wondered why Mike was giving away advertising in his sig.

What I think is somewhat amusing is that there's 13 posts already in this thread, all of which concern repair and no one's seen the original topic yet.

Frustrating....

I have seen it - if I was home I would happily host it - yet work gets in the way of another thing.

Of course it's been patched up as good as new and is always dependable when needed

I was taking off at Yuma, AZ in 96, and a Marine H-46 caught fire just as it was lifting off from the MCAS runway. They set the thing back on the deck, and egressed as the thing burnt to nothing.
