Originally 149009 with the US Navy, this Sea King was transferred to the USAF as 62-12571. Placed in storage at MASDC Dec 16, 1974, it was sold to Croman October 15, 1981. Photographed looking slightly askew, the helicopter had earlier lost the tail rotor assembly when lifting off. The pilot managed to put it back on the ground before going into the adjacent ditch (where the tail rotor and gear box ended up). It's still current with Croman at the time of uploading.
