      "The huey can not do a button-hook, no way." Wrong...not sure about the
      "N, y & Z" modles but the "good" stick jocks in did them in 66/67....only problem ...it was a tad hard on the C C's skives when the old "salts" were teaching it to the NEWB's
      Samie same with the CH-46 H2Ps learning buttonhok approaches and NIGHT CARRIER QUALS!!! WOW!! I figured if I lived through those the "real" ones would be easy.....I was almost right!!! I have a lot of stick time in the left seat, but never got to land on a carrier...Always thought I could....

        The problem as I see it is that the Corps is being asked to do things that should never have been it's mission. We are or at least were assualt troops to assualt and hold for the army to take over we are now being asked to assualt and hold w/o any hope of the army every helping. Wrong mission for wrong troops. get back to assualt preferably ocean born assualt. We are Marines not Army for pete sake

          Regarding doing a buttonhook in a '46: As a pilot I happen to believe executing a buttonhook is a lot easier than changing an engine in the field. I have done the first and observed the second.

            Ray,
            I have done both and either can be accomplished with the right Marine doing he training! Running out of Nr and altitude at the same time is a skill "acquired" from a talented HAC. We snuffies taught lotsa guys to change engines, just took longer to accomplish! LOL!
