      Old friends and aircraft

      Thanks Walt,
      Good info. She was a powerhouse of an "Alpa", of course I had turned the fuel control up on both engines back in the day and even I could fly her straight and level or grease on a 60 knot roll-on landing......Good memories, mostly of that old bird. I'm sure your bird has some too.... Appreciate you thinking of me.
      Hope you and yours are well and in good spirits!
      Semper Fidelis

        Hay Walt I worked on a Beech 18 (same as SNB-5) in the civilian world. Just happened they were hauling drugs with it and they (feds) took a good look at all that worked on it. We had no idea what it was used for, we were just doing an annual inspection on the side from our regular job. The guy leading the job was pushing us to get it done so he could do a run-up on it. He ran it while it was up on jacks and it hopped the jacks and poked a hole in the wing. Too bad he had to patch it on his own!

              Phrog 153402

              I flew 153402 as YS 6 while with HMM-162 from 1984-1987. I qual'd on it and took it over from Jimmy "JP" Paige on my first cruise in '85. It was my bird on my 2nd cruise 86-87 and several Det's in between. I logged lots of hours on that baby. She was a strong bird.

              I last saw it on HMM-261's line at Al-Asad during OIF II in March 2004. It's MODEX was EM 06. I got a final picture with it after all those years. It's a shame to see it on a stick but they couldn't have picked a better one.

              Col. Thacker, who dedicated it, was a boot Lt. in 162 on my second cruise. I know we flew together numerous times on that bird.
