Featuring a watertight hull and stabilizing floats that made it capable of landing on water, the HH-52 was similar in appearance to the Navy's SH-3 Sea King, and held the distinction of being the first turbine-engine rotary wing aircraft to be certified. This HH-52, displayed at National Naval Aviation Museum, was delivered on 13Jan1963, remaining operational until 1987. During its flying days, it accumulated over 13,737 flight hours and more than 800 search and rescue missions that saved over 600 lives.
