67-17767 UH-1H "Miss MarLeen"
with Maj. Jim Gaffney - Crusader 6
Crew Chief - SP/5 Dave 'Doc' Brown
Miss MarLeen was named for my wife MARgaret and daughter KathLEEN.  She was a new ship when received and was selected as the C&C through the existing practice of cycling new ships to the C&C which got more blade time and needed higher availability. She was later cycled into the lift fleet.

E.  - #767
