This last flight is very important to us and we pay tribute to this helicopter, Richardson said in a video released by the AH-1W helicopter manufacturer fangbel helicopter company Im honored to be the last person to fly the fighter. I never thought Id have such an experience.

The 773rd Light Attack Helicopter Squadron began to install this armed helicopter in 1994. The US Marine Corps used it frequently in the Afghanistan war from 2003 to 2005. The U.S. Marine Corps has also used the helicopter in Iraq and Somalia, as well as for the U.S. Marine Corps expeditionary force deployed on U.S. naval vessels.

According to the report, the U.S. Marine Corps has now installed a more advanced ah-1z Viper helicopter, which can fly faster and carry more weapons and ammunition. The U.S. Marine Corps is also upgrading its transport helicopters, planning to replace ch-53e helicopters with ch-53k helicopters.
