We would like to formally thank our Hawaii employee, Alberto Vargas, for his heroic efforts to assist in the capture of a car thief last week. Alberto happened to be in the same place where a suspected car thief crashed a stolen car and fled the scene. Alberto immediately approached the vehicle and attempted to shut off the engine to protect bystanders but was unable to do so because the vehicle had been hot-wired. Realizing that the person who fled was likely the thief, Alberto chased down the suspect, cornering him at the same time two Hawaii PD officers arrived on scene. With Alberto’s assistance, the police officers were able to subdue and arrest the suspect.

Thank you, Alberto, for taking swift action and protecting those around you!

Our PKL H-1 team at Cherry Point, NC just completed a phase on UH-1N, BuNo 160455. This is the last Phase on a UH-1N for the active duty Marine Squadrons. HMLA-467 will start to transition to the Yankee’s next month. According to HMLA-467, they are the last active duty squadron that has UH-1N’s, and this will be the last phase inspection we do on a Huey.
