  • VMO-6 In Leatherneck Magazine

    In the January issue there is a fascinating story of VMO-6 starting with the first days of the Korean War to the end. What is interesting are the photos of the HO's and the OY Stinson. That is the old fabric job used for observation, supply and medivac. This A/C had a compartment behind the seats with a fold-down door so that it could take on a single stretcher born patient. It was one busy aircraft before the arrival of the OE. Wondering how many guys around still remember that one.
