Richard's Last Ride

Yorba Linda, CA -- Sometimes we live near famous places but never visit. I heard of the Nixon Library many times but never took the time to stop by.

During lunch, I decided to follow the signs from the freeway to the Nixon Presidential Library & Museum. I didn't have time to go in but I did wander around the perimeter, taking photos of Dick's Helicopter. Other than the cheep weather stripping on the door, the chopper was in pretty good shape.

The photo on the left is of Nixon saying goodbye to the White House staff from the door of his Sikorsky VH-3A Sea King helicopter, on August 9, 1974.

In spite of resigning in disgrace, we tend to forget his many accomplishments. Nevertheless, a tragic time for this country.
