the HOK, HUP and an AH-1J through the CH-53A, an Iraqi Bell 214S (liberated
when the Marines captured Beirut International during Desert Storm),
an “Evil Eyes” H-34 of HMM-163 and a HRS, these helicopters
represent the birth and growth of helicopter operations pioneered
by forward thinking Marine Aviators of an earlier day. Walk among
them and marvel at how far technology has brought us from the 1950’s
technology to today.
