EVENT PHOTOS
 

  Our guys are back from the National Museum Of The Marine Corps in Quantico VA. We flew our UH-34 into the museum parking lot and was on static display during our USMC Combat Helicopter Association reunion held in Washington DC August 14-17. Many of the visitors that visited YN-19 actually flew and worked on her during the 6 years (1963-69) in Vietnam.

  
  Below are photos from the air shows or special events we have attended.

The following pictures are of our approach to land and our departure.

2008 Reunion USMC National Museum         

 

 The air show was Fantastic!  our UH-34D performed a pilot down rescue hoisting two downed pilots to safety. Flying with us in the show were three O2A's observation aircraft, these aircraft were used during the Vietnam War. Also flying with us was a F58 and a Russian Mig.

15 B25's were there at the show and they all flew in two formations. What a wonderful sight to see these Warbirds all flying at the same time.

2007 MCAS Cherry Point

 Our flight was a long 5.4 hours to arrive and a SUPER LONG 9.5 hours to get home due to 40 knot head winds. The show had many beautiful aircraft both as static and flying in the show.
  The air show was Fantastic! we performed a Vietnam medevac reenactment of a wounded marine. We had some volunteer Marines from Camp LeJeuene NC that assisted us with the reenactment. We had fun doing the performance and everyone watching enjoyed it very much. We got nothing but positive compliments for our reenactment.
