Description

Ultimately, the story of Pave Low bears out the first Special Operations Forces Truth: Pave Low proved to be a highly capable and impressive a C/HH-53 aircraft, but more significantly, the people behind Pave Low, and those who served with it, were, and always will be, even more impressive.

The Pave Low family spans the decades, beginning with the veterans of conflict in Southeast Asia who conceptualized the Pave Low, tested it, made it operational, and served as the initial cadre of leaders of units equipped with Pave Low. Those who followed cut their teeth in action during the 1990s and served as leaders of operations in the aftermath of  9/11.

The story of  Pave Low is the story of all who envisioned, created, modified, maintained, and operated Pave Low throughout its service life, and to them goes the credit for the remarkable contributions of this unique aircraft.
