HMLA 469 Displays Their Teamwork Skills

Aviation Teamwork


HMLA 469 Unloads Their Light Attack Helicopters By Hand from a C-17

Story by Corporal Mianna J. Morrison, 30 November 2018

 

The week of November 26th showed us some extraordinary teamwork skills, as the recently returned Marines of HMLA 469 unloaded a Huey and a Cobra from a C-17 by hand, using ropes, tow wheels, and a Tug at the very end.  The C-17 was parked on the runway most of the day, however it took the Marines just over an hour to unload the two helicopters. Captain Adkison was their to capture the event, and his photos can be seen in the slides above.

Many of the Marines seen in the photos are from the squadrons maintenance department, but Marines from the administrative sections can be seen working along side them as well. Master Sergeant Maxon, maintenance chief, was their to direct and guide the operation to a smooth finish.
