First five enroute. 1966
1st Five
The first five CH-53s in HMH-463 enroute from Stratford to Santa Ana.
I (Mike Amtower) was at NAS Dallas in '66 when one of these 53s landed either for fuel or with a mechanical issue, little knowing that I would join them in Santa Ana in January of 1967. I remember being quite impressed with the size of them at the time.
