  • Yp 13

    Hello -

    My name is Joseph F. Rosenberg. In 1962 is was Capt. USMC 075669, HAC serving with HMM 163. In the fall of 1962 I resigned my commission due to family medical necessity.

    Can you direct me to a source to obtain the serial number of HUS-1 that gained notoriety as YP 13 in 1965?

    Siember Fi,
    Joseph F. Rosenberg

      YP 13

      The history of the aircraft at the museum is posted on the museum's website, specific page:
      I saw it at the museum a few years ago. It is a beautifully restored a/c and a real tribute to HMM-163, but doesn't look to be the historical YP-13 by the museum's records. Incidentally, I can't recall evil eyes on it at the time and don't detect them on the picture at the referenced page.

        I was a member of HMM-163 until about October 1965 when the big pilot mix- master went on. Evil Eyes were not on HMM-163 aircraft at that time.

          Hmm163 got the bird from hmm 365, I crewed it while we had it, when I got it in 1964 it was in the corner of the hanger at Danang the previous sqaudron had used it for parts, a real hanger queen, after we got it put back together it was a real good air craft. Got me through a lot of rough spots, as it did Farley
