Didn’t want to highjack another thread -- So I started this one. My father retired from the USAF in 1973; his last duty station (where he ultimately retired from) was MacDill AFB; Tampa, Florida. when you entered the Air Base by vehicle or by bicycle, you passed or went near the Aerospace Rescue and Recovery Squadron hanger. In 1970 they had the HH43 Huskie. You could watch them from the road. https://www.nationalmuseum.af.mil/V...s/Display/Article/196061/kaman-hh-43b-huskie/ https://pimaair.org/museum-aircraft/kaman-hh-43f/ The helicopter had a device that they would sling load (the load attached with cables called a sling, would be moved with a hook on the bottom of the helicopter). I later found out that this was a fire suppression kit. https://dodfirenews.blogspot.com/p/kaman-hh-43b-huskie.html Left a lasting impression on me !!!! One day the UH-1N Twin Pack Huey showed up. Brings back a lot of memories when I see one on display.
