I recently had the pleasure of hooking up with Marine Pilot Capt. Matt McCloud who had served over in the Iraq Theatre and has since returned to CONUS and is curently stationed in North Carolina.

During our correspondence he asked me if I would be interested in a self made CD containing various pics taken by him during his "Float" and I thought I would share a few of them with you.

Capt. McCloud is a CH53 SeaKnight Pilot ...

Thank you Capt. McCloud and crew for your service to our country ...



Nice try Sadaam but I don't think its gonna fly ... :roll:

Looks like a ch53d to me. Almost 20 years ago when they first came out I worked on ch53e super stallions.
Take that ch53d & add an extra engine, an extra prop, & the tail and ya got yourself an echo. No extra space inside but external can carry about twice the weight as I recall. Been 20 years, but I remember 37 troops or 50 some with the centerline seats added.
For troops & cargo I think the 53 is a major step from the 46.
