I was with HML-267 at MCALF Camp Pendleton in 1968-1969 as an electrician (1141) in the engineering support section (aka "buildings and grounds")... one of our projects of some note was to build a really big sign with big bold letters and install it at the end of the runway for all those helicopter pilots and newbies who had to remember what they were flying, the brand new OV-10A Broncos... it simply said... WHEELS. I think we were also the first unit to find out what happens when a hotshot pilot tries to do a roll when he is flying a bit too low....
