Daily Analog Photo - "Twist and Turn, Crash and Burn"

Aboard the USS Bon Homme Richard watching a Boeing CH-46 Sea Knight. The HC-3 "Pack Rats" flew these out of  Ream Field in Imperial Beach, CA. Our squadron HC-1 "Fleet Angels" flew the much smaller Kaman UH-2.

Fun Fact: Kaman Industries (builder of the UH-2 was located in Connecticut and also created the Ovation Guitar line.

I'm standing near our helo looking at the Sea Knight
I've ridden in one of these and they are noisy and uncomfortable
