"368" served with Det. 1 for the last ten years, both in support of state operations and during the unit deployments to Afghanistan, in 2009 and 2013; during its service, “368” earned a reputation for reliability and sturdiness among the unit’s pilots, maintainers and crew-chiefs. Its last mission started on August 16, from SCARNG Army Aviation Support Facility n. 2, Greenville, SC, and included a stop at Fort Drum, NY, where Det.1 received a newer F-model Chinook from Company B, 3-10 GSAB “Colossal,” 10th CAB, 10th Mountain (Infantry Light) Division. 368’s last mission resumed on Friday, Aug. 18, as a two-ship formation with the newly acquired CH-47F, and ended at Summit Aviation, Middletown, New Castle County, DE, where 368 will be resold as an airworthy aircraft, through an auction, to either a foreign-military or a private operator.
