Preserved in the hangar bay of the USS Hornet museum at Alameda Naval Air Station. The helo carries the markings of the famous "helo 66" that was used to recover several Apollo crews. The actual "helo 66" was BuNo 152711 and crashed in 1975. The helo on the photo was painted with the markings for its appearance in the movie "Apollo 13". Therefore, it also carries the additional USS Iwo Jima markings.
