    Buno 150557

    This aircraft served in Vietnam with HMM-362 in 1967-68 as recorded in my pilot's log book. Entries occurred in Chu Lai, aboard the USS Okinawa, and Phu Bai.

      Another hit

      T's Flight Logs, 362, have two entries for this BuNo;

      March 27/28 nightime flight to Phu Bai, and

      June 26 flight to Princeton.

      Forgot to add that was 1968.

      Sheehan's idea was a good one, I can fwd copies of page, too.

          Uh-34 150557

          I flew this aircraft 5 times between Jun 67 and Sep 67 on the USS Okinawa and out of Phu Bai to Dong Ha and Khe Sahn. If you wish I can scan the appropriate pages from my log book for you.

                            No Joe, as human as I am, I missed it. Glad it served its puropse after all. The glasses I got last march,(va), were way off. Must have been farmed out to a towel shop. Semper Fi, and READY-APP.

                              Re: Uh-34d #150557-Hoist Bird, center Main Page.

                              Hmm-265 had an external mounted, hoist Bird as well in '69. It was EP-11. I know, as I trained on it, then went to #13 for 2 weeks as well, and took the check ride after 198 Combats that month, then getting my own, #14. Enjoyed the three #14's I had. Semper Fi, and READY-APP.
