  • Aquisition of last CH46 that lifted last Marines from embassy during Frequent Wind.

    Hello all! I have completed the restoration of CH53 "Patches" BuNo 153715 at the Fort Worth aviation Museum, on the south end of Meacham Field in Fort Worth. All I lack are two complete wind shield wiper system,ss arms and blades. I can use a set from an A or D or E 53.

    On the subject of this post: We have found out that the last CH46 that pulled the last Marines off the embassy roof during Frequent Wind is dismantled and sitting at Davis-Monthan in Tucson, AZ.

    We at FWAM are interested in getting this AC and sitting it beside Patches in our yard. We currently have 25 war birds in our collection, many of them Vietnam era and FAC oriented.

    Anyone that is interested in helping us acquire this 46, we welcome to join us. We'd like to get her before DM may decide to scrap her.

    You are all also invited, if you are ever in Fort Worth, to stop by Long & Ross streets at the south end of Meacham and look over our birds.
