A CH-53E Super Stallions with Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 361 (-) (Reinforced) line the flightline here ready to support International Security Assistance Forces operations within the region. Being the only CH-53E squadron with 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (Forward), the squadron was reinforced with additional manpower from HMH-466. Together, under the HMH-361 (-) (Rein) flag, the squadron's 17 aircraft have transported more than 4.5 million pounds of cargo, 26,000 personnel and flown more than 3,100 flight hours since they arrived here Aug. 1.
