"Fort Worth Aviation Museum" This Stallion had a relatively short operational career. Being acquired by the Marines in the late 1960's it went to Vietnam where it was severely damaged during a rocket attack. It then went back to the States and was eventually retired in 1982. It is on loan from the museum in Pensacola. It is still in preparation for display and the rotor blades still need to be attached. [Nikon D800 / AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm]
