A Helicopter Combat Support Squadron (HC) 2 "Fleet Angels" UH-3H Sea King at the Muharraq platform. The squadron runned Detachment 2 at this location. Strikingly is the nice arabic 740 on the nose cone. The UH-3H is a cargo, utility transport conversion of the SH-3H Sea King. The SH-3H Anti-Submarine/Surface Warfare systems were removed to make space for cargo.

This 1978 Puma is used by Erickson Evergreen Helicopters but leased to the US Navy Military Sealift Command under a three plus two year contract of Geo-Seis Helicopters. Geo-Seis operated 2 SA330Js (see my other picture of N405R), aboard three MSC combat stores ships on a rotating basis beginning in Jan'05. The commercial helos deployed aboard the ships all over the world and operate often from shore bases for vertical replenishment missions. Strikingly, this N330JF is only painted as N330J. Check all the US Navy squadron (sticker)zaps on the wheel bay.

This 1978 Puma is used by Erickson Evergreen Helicopters but leased to the US Navy Military Sealift Command under a three plus two year contract of Geo-Seis Helicopters. Geo-Seis operated 2 SA330Js (see my other picture of N405R), aboard three MSC combat stores ships on a rotating basis beginning in Jan'05. The commercial helos deployed aboard the ships all over the world and operate often from shore bases for vertical replenishment missions. Strikingly, this N330JF is only painted as N330J. Check all the US Navy squadron (sticker)zaps on the wheel bay.

This "Candid" was built as Il-76MD and received registration CCCP-86903 within the Soviet Air Force before its delivery on 10 Mar'83. The bird was sold to Atlant as UR-86903 and converted to Il-76TD in '91. The airframe was 2 times reregistred within Atlant, to UR-76382 in Oct'94 and to RA-76382 in Feb'95. The aircraft was then sold to Atlant Aerobatics as HA-TCG in Jul'96. It operated mainly from Budapest and was transferred to again another Atlant, this time Atlant Hungary in May'00. It was seen at Shymkent (Kazakhstan) with cut off wings and tail in 2010. The fuselage was last seen in 2016.
