    Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point

    A flight of four HH-46D Seaknight helicopters make one of their final formation flights over North Carolina's Outer Banks in August 2015, weeks before the Marine Corps turned the aircraft over to the Navy as the Corps' ended its search and rescue mission. The helicopters were a familiar sight in Eastern North Carolina skies for decades as Marine Transport Squadron 1 conducted SAR and medical transport flights for both military and civilian emergencies, including the rescue of 399 people directly threatened by flood after Hurricane Floyd washed through eastern North Carolina in September 1999. The end of another era will be marked in late December 2017 when VMR-1 transfers from Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C., to its new base of operations in Fort Worth, Texas, under the 4th Marine Aircraft Wing, where it will continue its worldwide transport missions in support of DOD.
