First incentive flight aboard a Marine CH-53 Super Stallion


#1

Now that my hearing has returned, I got a really awesome opportunity to get an incentive flight with a TDY Marine Squadron at Peterson AFB today. I have to say this is one of the best things about working directly with airfield management and being tied into the militaries aviation community. She was an old bird and really shakey on taxi and lift off, but it was amazing views once we got airborne over the ranges near Pueblo Colorado and the Pikes Peak area. Here are some of the shots I was able to capture oh on personal note, I conquered my fear of heights when I got the chance to sit out on the back bay door lol. Enjoy the photos. Cheers!
