You guys know better than most, if flying machines don't stay flying, thy begin to break and fall apart. This Bird needs to stay in the air as long as possible, not go to a museum as a dust catcher. I read some of your brothers Facebook comments. This bird would look absolutely wonderful flying at a UDT/SEAL Reunion! I have passed on the info: https://www.warhistoryonline.com/military-vehicle-news/huey.html To Fort Pierce, as they had a static UH-1B painted as SEAWOLF 312, displayed outside. This Helo was severely damaged in one of the storms a few years ago. They have been looking for a replacement. Say so prayers and keep your fingers crossed.
I flew with Mike Dodson and Bill Ruthledge in 321 in 2009. At that time it had a tail boom with 711 on it. Pat Rogers,the pilot, told me the tail boom was a Seawolf tail boom as there were signatures of some maintenance personnel in side the tail boom. I got the Bureau No. from Pat and I had 11 flights with that tail boom in Vietnam.
