Boeing Vertol CH-46 Sea Knight

@Watsonville Airport, Watsonville, CA

August 2012

This Marine Phrog descends into a dust storm of its own making as it lands at the Watsonville Fly-In.  In service since 1964, the USMC CH-46 has now been replaced by the MV-22 Osprey, a transition that was completed in April of 2015.  The US Navy retired their Sea Knights in 2004.  Nikon D7000 w/70-200mm, processed with Aperture.
