  • CH 46 40th Anniversary event with HMM-164

    The event was great and it was nice to walk inside of the 46 again! It still has that darn hydraulic system hand pump that we all loved so much
    I will attempt to post some photos of the event.

                  This was the last bird in Saigon during operation frequent wind. It is still on active duty almost 30 years later.

                    No, It smelled mostly of JP, but the ramp was still slick with hydraulic fluid

                          It was redesignated as MCAS Camp Pendleton on 13 Mar 85. It was MCALF when I was there (75-78) and there were only 4 flying squadrons plus Det H&MS-16.

                            which one is the "Last Bird" out of Siagon?

                            I have been looking at several pictures at Popasmoke and have found several pictures of the Last Bird out of Siagon. Pictures No's 921, 922, & 1565 from the archives show Bu No 154803 as the last bird out of Saigon attached to HMM 165. I have always thought HMM 164 had the last bird out, "First in Last out". I can not see the Bu No on the MCAF Pendelton HMM 164 reunion. Does anyone know the answer?

                              154803 from HMM-165 was the aircraft that brought out the Ambassador, but the last helo out was from HMM-164, which brought the ground security force back to the USS Okinawa, over two hours later. 154803 was serving with HMM-764 last year.
