129314 was converted to a drone in 1957 and made the first drone helicopter flight without a safety pilot on 30 July 1957. See other photo for the same airframe in a very different setting, with the Navy and 'A Joint Army - Navy Program' markings overpainted. Oddly Robert Kelly took both shots in the same series for Life magazine. Photo by: Robert Kelley / Life

The H-43A was the first USAF version of Kaman's K-600, still powered by an R-1340 Wasp piston engine as you can see. It was already a base rescue helicopter just like the later, turbine-engined H-43s. Preceded by 58-5524, this airframe, 58-1823, was the first production H-43A, first flying on 19 September 1958. With Navy HUK-1 BuNo 146317 hovering behind, this photo must have been taken around that time. Photo by: Robert Kelley / Life
