Pedro Helicopter “02” squats patiently at Miller’s Landing moments before its crew receives the order to launch on its final flight at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C., Sept. 25, 2015. This flight conducted with its two remaining fellow aircraft, will be the final “phrog” flight for the Department of Defense. Pedro’s distinctive orange and gray colors have been a familiar sight in eastern North Carolina, especially welcomed when the weathered has turned and someone is in distress at sea or the surrounding forests.
