The Fleet Readiness Center East (Depot/NARF/NADEP/FRCE Cherry Point) just delivered their last reworked Phrog this morning. (9 Nov. 2012) They had a nice ceremony for the event and it marked the end of all Marine 46 depot reworks.

The last aircraft was buno 156476 and it's headed to Cherry Point SAR (VMR-1). The 2nd to last was 155308 and it's now at HMM-774. I'm sure at some time you touched both of these acft.

You may have also heard a few months back the last 46 pilot graduated the Fleet Replacement Squadron (HMMT-164). That event marked the end of our Marine pilot chain. And believe it or not, the guy was born in 1985!
