Flight Journal contains a feature about OBA member Jim Moriarty (jim_bob@moriarty.com) on page 16. Jim owns and has restored a now-uncommon historical aircraft that served beside the Bronco, a Sikorsky UH-34D Choctaw / Sea Horse helicopter (the military version of the S-58.) He takes the helo to airshows around the nation to honor those who served in Vietnam. The ship retains the original Wright Cyclone engine and flies in the colors of aircraft YL-42 of HMM-362… the first USMC helicopter unit to go to Vietnam.
