Photo Comment

An old favourite of mine in the Aviodome / Aviodrome, at last positioned for a decent photo. The Netherlands navy received three HO4S-3 helicopters on 9 September 1953. Cleopatra and Delilah crashed but Salomé survived to be retired in 1963, thus formally earning re-designation as a UH-19G.
