You all have great looking wheels, but this is all I can afford to collect.

Photography and Tec Scuba diving take up the money left over after the wife and daughter are done.

That picture is in the national museum. I signed the old girl in a secret place just before we flew her there for her retirement. I thanked her for all the times she took me out to sea and back and for her years of faithful service.

I miss flying the old girl more than anyone can ever know....

That's an awesome idea. I spent 10 years on active duty flying the sexiest machine ever invented, and now I'm in the reserves still flying her. The current plan is that our squadron will be the last Phrog squadron in the US. Ever. We're supposed to decommission in Q1 FY2016. I am eligible to retire Q2 FY2016. My current plan is to pre-drill Q2 during Q1, then have my last flight/last day in the USMC saying goodbye to the old girl. I won't lie - I might cry. I've had good days and bad days, but the old girl has always brought me home to my family. It'll be nice to bid her farewell after 52 years of service, and simultaneously bid farewell to the USMC after 20 years...

I think that if anyone can know how much you miss flying her, I can...

They considered it. Just didn't fit for how we operate.

It could get there faster, but not ideal fro hovering over a pitching deck and hoisting SAR techs.

It was also when the osprey was going though the initial round of.....ahem...."problems".

We ended up with the EH101. It's by no means ideal, but it's getting there. After 10 years of "dealing with it" that is.....

I've often joked that it will be fine after we finally give in and do a Proper SARCUP on it. Like we did with the CH113/A when we took them over from the army.

I hear you on the retirement.

I often wish I could have retired with the Labrador when we handed her over to the folks in the national air museum outside Ottawa.

Oh well, 8 more years and I get the 30 years service I wanted.

But it would have been nice to go out with the old girl.....it just would have felt......"right".
