The US Marine Corps' Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 367 (HMLA-367) has carried out its final flight of the AH-1W Super Cobra helicopter located at Marine Corps Base Hawaii, as the fleet prepares for retirement.

The AH-1Ws are being replaced by the AH-1Z Viper helicopter. The first three AH-1Zs arrived at HMLA-367 in December 2017.

Three out of the eight retired AH-1Ws will remain on the island of Oahu as static displays; the other five will be transported to the aircraft maintenance and regeneration group in Tucson, Arizona, where the aircraft will be preserved.

The HMLA-367 will continue to maintain and fly the Huey UH-1Y Venom helicopter and new AH-1Zs as well as continue sending aircraft to augment the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit in Okinawa, Japan and Marine Rotational Force – Darwin.
