I had 157651 as my aircraft from 1989 thru 1991. Did Desert Shield/Storm and Operation Eastern Exit for the evacuation of the American Embassy in Somalia where she was at risk of being blown up in place after Somali people threatened to blow us up if we didn't stop the evac. Great aircraft. Huge patch on the aft LH side where an externaled blade can swung up and the pendant wrapped around the LH MLG. Then it swung up and hit the aircraft. I had given the aircraft up to my raggie Rich Lowery for his cherry hop and that happened, Never seen anyone feel so bad about hurting my aircraft. Good times.

AC 11, Buno 157651 was my aircraft from 1996-2002. Ac 11 was on the USS Nassau, Kersarge, Battaan during my time with it. My first combat experience on 157651 was in 1997 as we rescued the American Embassy in Tirrana, Albania. We stayed in the Adriatic Sea while conducting operations there. We took a split ARG to the coast of Africa, Republic of Congo to settle the unrest and possible NEO. In 1998-1999 we conducted operations in the former Yugoslavia. Two months this aircraft stayed in Skopje, Macedonia for operations to secure the American sector in Kosovo. I took Ac 11 into Afghanistan, where it also served as my bed for 3 months, to Kandahar in the fall of 2001. This ac flew many combat missions over Afghanistan. This aircraft was a strong flyer, lots of blood, sweat, and tears went into that machine, and I loved it every second! Semper Fi 157651.
