n.— «With protruding side wheels and a nose-up attitude on the ground, the CH-46 Sea Knight helicopter has the appearance of a frog ready to hop—some would say it certainly does, especially when moving forward on the deck. Since the Vietnam era, the “Phrog” as it is affectionately known, can best be described as a flying bus.» —“Marine Corps’ venerable CH-46 flies ahead” by Paul Leicht in Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, Calif. Military Family Network Aug. 24, 2005.
