30jul15 the aircraft was NOT retired by HMMT-164. It was transferred to HMM-774 with the original ident plate stolen prior to receipt by HMM 774. It was flown today from Norfolk VA to Dulles to be inducted at the Steven F Udvar-Hazy Center on Saturday August 1, 2015. Eventually will be transferred to the Marine Corps Museum.
