      I occasionally fly a UH-1E for the Collings Foundation. This aircraft, BU# 153762 served, according to our records, with VMO-2 and VMO-6 in Vietnam. I hope to meet those who served with this aircraft in country and learn of their service.
      Beddoe;Do you know where I might pick-up a used?non-funcing UH-1 transmission for our restoration project here at the Palm Springs Air Museum?
      Thanks..Jerry

        A/C 153762 at HML-367 Futenma

        I flew this AC on 10 Aug 72 on a test flight and on 30 Aug on a night training flt. I left Futenma in Sept and had no other flts in it. I was the Maintenance offficer at that time so that was probably about when it arrived at HML-367 maybe from overhaul at Atsugi.

          This Was One Of My Birds. I Was Line Chief From Nov 72 To Nov 73. Hml=367 Okinowa. I Flew Most Of The Check Flights With Capt Savage So It Is Probably In My Log Somewhere. I Sure Do Miss Those Times. Bill Mcmillian. By The Way Joe, Hi, I Was Your Line Chief In K-bay

            BuNo 153762

            I flew this aircraft on 3 occasions while TAD from VMO-6 to HML-367 in '69. 8 of us lieutenants and 4 crewchiefs were left in country to finish pulling the last of the recon battalion out of northern I Corps in October/November, 1969. I flew 762 on 21 October (7.4 hours), 27 October (2.0) and 28 October (2.7), all out of Quang Tri. We finished the last extract on 4 November and rejoined VMO-6 at Futenma shortly thereafter. At that time, 762 was most definitely a gun bird.
            Hope this fills in a blank or two.

                history for 153762

                I wish it had flown more than the 6728 hours, and 17703 landings, in the almost 17 years it was in Military Service. Semper Fi, and READY-APP.

                  Matching this info to the HML-367 After Action Reports for those dates confirms 153762 as VT-11

                    tail code

                    I am glad the tail code was finally found on the huey. It being VT-11. I was close, I would have said VT-10. Semper Fi, and READY-APP.
