By the time this photo was taken, 153325 (del. c. 1965) was one of a rapidly decreasing number of CH-46's still carrying the Gloss Engine Gray finish with colorful markings. Assigned the vertical replenishment mission, this Sea Knight belonged to the aptly-named HC (Helicopter Combat Support sqn.)-3 "Pack Rats", NAS North Island, CA.
