Air Force One, Marine One souvenirs
Lens: DFA 100 Camera: K-1 
Posted By: KiloHotelphoto, 01-30-2017, 11:42 AM

Going through stuff in the closet today and found my old souvenirs from working with Air Force One and HMX-1 Squadron, Marine One. I wish I would have had my Pentax gear back then, I was able to get some nice shots of the aircraft using a old Olympus point and shoot.

Those are M&M's, they are red, white and blue.

Here are some pics I took with the old Olympus.

Hi KiloHotelphoto. Thanks for your service. My father was HMX-1 in '56-'57 under Eisenhower, on Sikorsky S-58s.

I actually got all this stuff and pictures after I got out of the Marines. When I was in all I got to see was F-18's,Ch-53's and Cobras.
After I got out I got a job working in general aviation and we also handled all the military aircraft that came into Philly International.
When ever POTUS would come in the HMX 1 guys would show up a day or two in advance and put the SH-3's in are hanger. They had signs saying no pictures but I would talk to the security forces Marines about boot and when I was in and they would say go ahead.
I was able to get so many great aviation shots working there, I wish I had the K-1 then. I still go back and talk to friends there and I could get out on the ramp or into the hangers but I will never get the access to Air Force One like I use to.
