I was privileged as a Flight Mechanic to take the 1475 to Blackhawk Technical College the first week of May 1994 from CGAS Clearwater. We used the airframe as the static display during the farewell ceremony, during the party everybody signed the Helo with sharpies. 1475 was the second to the last HH-3F to leave the CG the 1486 was the last... It was a great trip with 0 discrepancies noted.
