The crew reported many waves, horns and people taking photos during the drive back to Arizona along Interstate 25 and 40 through Albuquerque.
Here are some photos taken this morning at Overseas Aircraft Support during the unloading.
So we left the helicopter sitting right there until the crew came back with a lift truck and flat bed trailer to haul it back to the shop.
The bad engine has been removed and a different T53-L-13B is being installed for the trip to Oshkosh on July 23rd.Sorry Seawolves, we didn't make it over to the USS Midway. But we are very glad this was a minor problem that occured close to home and not half way across the desert. Nobody was hurt, no damage and the flight testing of Seawolf 324 will continue in a few days.
