  • I'm Headed to OIF with 463!

    My name is 1stLt Frank, I am a pilot with HMH-463 out of K-bay still flying the 53D. I'm the squadron historian and have been frequenting this site for the past few months researching the 40th anniversary of heavy lift for HMH-463.

    I thought it was interesting that in March of 2006 we are headed to OIF to attach to MAG-16.....I know it sounds kind of framiliar because almost 40 years ago to the day 463 attached to MAG-16 in Vietnam.

    I'm also interested in many of the pictures on this site as I cannot save them from If anyone can email me pictures at I would appreciate it. If ther is any interest I also have a lot of pictures from our current operations and will try to post 463 pictures and videos from Iraq on this site in the months to come.

    436 History

    Aloha Lt. Frank,
    I was with 463 in Nam, 70-71 and currently living in Kailua. I have helped the squadron in the past with a few history projects. If I can be of any assistance please contact me via this web site (private email).
