New Marine One Will Change Aviation - Best Helicopter EVER?

In this fascinating video for aviation and helicopter enthusiasts, we will talk about the legendary US government helicopter - Marine One. It is famous not only for its unique appearance and powerful engines. And the fact that the Sikorsky/Lockheed Martin VH-92 Patriot is an American helicopter being developed to replace the U.S. Marine Corps Marine One presidential transport fleet. It is a modernized version of the Sikorsky S-92 and in this video we will tell you why this particular helicopter takes the most influential people, including the President of the United States, when he needs to get from the White House to the airport. We will tell you how it is made and assembled, how it is transported in an airplane and what it is even for. Having been a member of HMX-1 etc., many Thanks for the video. The VH-3D's were wonderful aircraft to work and fly on and it's sad to see them go, however, they served their purpose well. Back in my day, we didn't have the VH-60's. We were still using the VH-1N's which were another beautiful and execuitive looking aircraft. My fondest memories were flying with HMX-1. While I was on Presidental Support during the Nixon and Ford administrations, I did not get to Quantico until the Carter & Reagan administrations where I actually worked on the aircraft. (Avionics) I don't think I truly appreciated how speical that was until after my retirement.
