SAN DIEGO - For some, the Miramar Air Show was a chance to look around and get inside a real military aircraft. But for others, a CH-46 helicopter means so much more.
Air show attendee Erin Millikin told 10News, "The smells of the fluid and how old even the fabric and it feels like home." It reminds Millikin of her dad, a Navy pilot who spent his career flying a CH-46.
The aircraft has been around since Vietnam, primarily used to transport Marines and drop off cargo. It is now being phased out and replaced with an Osprey, a faster helicopter/airplane.
