Photo of the Week – Kaman HH-43 Huskie In-Flight

This week’s Photo of the Week is this vintage Kaman HH-43 Huskie catched at the Olympic Airshow in Tumwater, WA. This true treasure of aviation was used from the 1950s to the 1970s primarily for firefighting and rescue in the close vicinity of air bases, but was later utilized as a short range overland search and rescue aircraft during the Vietnam War.
