U.S. Marines with Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron (HMM) 364, Marine Air Group (MAG) 39, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing “Fly the Barn” on Marine Corps Air Station Camp Pendleton, Calif., Mar. 31, 2014. After 47 years of flying the CH46, HMM-364, “Flies the Barn” taking off and landing in unison and flying in a mass formation, signifying the transformation to the MV22 Osprey. Produced by Cpl. Megan R. Scullin.

It takes a couple minutes to get going, but then it is a nice little tour. Take off from MCB Camp Pendelton, buzz by MCAS Miramar,  down the coast, over Coronado, up San Diego Bay and NAS North Island, and back up the coast to home.

Filmed just over a year ago, it is a fine sendoff to the mighty WarPhrop.  HMM-364 is now transitioning to the MV-22B.

  1. HMM 364 flew us around Anbar some years ago. I noticed they patched up the extra ventilation provided by the insurgents from time to time.
