Knight Rider: Tribute to the CH-46A Helicopter

By Peter Williams

August 2016

I survived a year, 1966, in Vietnam -- flew as a door gunner in the then-new Boeing Vertol CH-46A Sea Knight transport helicopter.

The U.S. Marine Corps and Boeing managed to keep the '46 in the inventory in various forms for 50 years, retiring it just last year.

The '46 continues to fly with the State Department and in various civilian roles.
