1968 I crewed this bird for most of the year

notes I crewed this bird for most of '68. I'm surprised we both made it back! I was with her when she suffered damage in July of '68 when sand clogged the fuel filter on engine number 1, and we lost power lifting and external load of 105 rounds at hill 55 and crashed into the ammo dump. She was lifted to MMAF where HAMS and a Boeing vertol tech repaired her. She carried Raquel Welsh and Bob Hope in November of '67 and was shot down a short time later. She was cannibalized and became mine in January of '68. We both started flying around February 1st. Her yellow sheets should tell one heck of a story! She is an old friend and outstanding A/C. She was a Marine before joining the Navy. We were members of Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 265. Semper Fi! -Gary Spevacek P.S. I was amazed to see 151952 hanging from the ceiling in the naval air museum . A long time ago her tail code was EP(Echo Papa) and her number was seven, she was painted green at the time
