Kaman H-43 Huskie


Pictured at Paine AFB, WA in the early 1960’s. the H-43 was designed to provide firefighting and rescue in close proximity to its bases. The Huskie was a real workhorse back in the day when aircraft mishaps were a more routine event. Interestingly, the Huskie had no tail rotor; it’s twin, intermeshing rotors provided the required stability.
