92ND AHC HELICOPTERS AND EM CREW MEMBERS
(Revised: 5/31/13 – Bill Robie)

The information in this list is compiled from many members of the 92nd AHC.  The accuracy is only as good as people can remember.  Therefore, the list may have incomplete, inconsistent, and incorrect information.  All helicopters of record for the 92nd AHC are believed to be listed.  Please report any known corrections or new information to Bill Robie billrobie@prodigy.net

1st Platoon (1) – yellow accent paint; 2nd Platoon (2) – blue accent paint;
Guns (3rd Platoon) (3) – white accent paint; Maintenance Platoon (4) – red accent paint
The accent paint color was typically placed (at least during the early years of the 92nd) on the following helicopter components: skid front toe step, skid rear end piece, end of synchronized elevator, tail boom end cover, and possibly tips of tail rotor blades.
