It sure isn't the same with the Huey not around anymore. There is a old one around that goes out and picks up plane wrecks here, thankfully it's not put to much use for that part.

I found some pictures he took while he was in Corpus Christie, I'll ask him where they're at. He has pictures of the Confederate Airforce somewhere.

My dad was a Crew Chief in the Guard, he did it for 26 years! He wrenched on Beavers, Otters, Heliocouriers, Twin Otters, and the UH-1D Huey.

Warpt, what does "wrenched" mean? Your dad "wrenched" on Otters, etc. (I know what kind of planes Otters are...)
