The CH-46 Sea Knight has served America’s military with distinction for more than 50 years. On Saturday, August 1, the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, in collaboration with the United States Marine Corps and National Museum of the United States Marine Corps, will present a retirement ceremony for this historic aircraft. Join us at noon outside the Boeing Aviation Hangar as one of the last CH-46 Sea Knights makes its final flight to the Udvar-Hazy Center.
The aircraft featured in the retirement ceremony is being donated to the National Museum of the Marine Corps by the United States Marine Corps. It will loaned to the National Air and Space Museum and remain on display at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center until an expansion of the National Museum of the Marine Corps is complete in the coming years.
