Squadron History

Sikorsky CH-53E "Super Stallion"

Photographs by John Fry & Nancy Wingo
ON THE FLIGHT-LINE -- A good eye will spot the "Fox in the Hen House". An Army CH-47 "Chinook" was part of some sort of cross-training exercises. Air Force F-16s arrived on base while these photos were being taken. A really good eye can make out in the far distance the semi high-rise buildings of San Diego's "Golden Triangle".
