A light drizzle is falling at the NAS Atlanta transit line as this rescue Sea King prepares to lift off. The "peace dividend" was well underway by now, and the wholesale phase out of aircraft and units in the US armed forces had become a flood! I later learned this H-3 was on its way to D-M and I barely caught it- that same day, I also saw and photographed 2 TA-4s from VF-43 Challengers going to the same place. Nice Pax River Sea King with old c/s, International Orange accents, and well presented titles.
