Watch this H-46 Helicopter that catches fire
Watch this video from inside the cabin of a H-46 Sea Knight, that catches fire during departure from a Landing Helicopter Dock…

Boeing delivered more than six hundred H-46 Sea Knights to the US Marine Corps and Navy from 1964 through 1971, and most of them are still flying. It will be replaced in Marine Corps service by the V-22 Osprey tilt rotor but according to the latest reports the H-46 will be in use until 2012, a service life of forty-eight years. The Marines joke “If it was good enough for my Father (by now occasionally Grandfather), its good enough for me.”
