    Doug Sims, Do you remember Curt Culbertson from the Metal Shop at that time? He was a good friend of mine, sadly, died in 1976... -Submitted by: Joe Reed [streetrodjoe@gmail.com] 2010-12-08

    I flew this CH-46 (156445 ) 1978 -79 with HMM-163 79-79. At that time the modex was YP -02. Great sqadron, great crews. -Submitted by: T.G. La Jeunesse [lajeun@att.net] 2008-03-29

    I e-mailed earlier today Dont know if it went threw Was at work I crewed this helicopter YP-20 !56445 starting in Jan of 1971 after returning from Viet Nam. Also in 1971 while taking off the aft rotor head to get new PV (pitch varying) seals the crane failed and the handle started spinning and it hit me in the side. It took fifty four stiches to close me up I continued to serve in HMM163 threw out the 1970s I retired as a 6119 maint chief in 1993 and flew as crew chief all the way up to the day I retired. Would love to hear from any old squardon member.
