*In the background is the new UH1-Y (Yankee) Huey chopper.  367 is the very first USMC aviation unit to receive and deploy this brand new version.  The Yankee (Y version) features the four blade prop, two upgraded engines and all the latest avionics making it a vast improvement over the previous version (the N).  It's ceiling is greatly increased, which is VERY necessary in Afghanistan.
