Nice photo Jason!  I was stationed at Hurlburt Fld. from 1987 to 1992.  I loved it!  I was a pneudraulic specialist on these bad boys.  I loved working on them and I miss it a lot!  I was there in Saudi Arabia for Desert Shield/ Storm and also in Panama for "Just Cause".  I have been all around the world with these beasts.  Thanks for the memories!

Well, the Pavelow is already retired, your thinking of the Super Stallion, which is in the same form. I don't think the V-22 could entirely replace the Super until quite awhile from now.
