H-21C photo request

Post by Mainsail »

By any chance would anyone have a photo of either of these H-21C's, 57-2610 and/or 57-2611, either from their time in the MASDC or in the case of 57-2610 at Hill AFB in the 1970's? Both were used as test helicopters for the twin gas turbine engine conversion but later restored to their standard Wright R-1820 powerplant.
Thanks,
Colin

CORRECTION!
Apologies, the tail numbers should read 53-4370 and 53-4397, both originally H-21Bs.

The incorrectly quoted numbers were 'H-21Cs, being payback' to the US Army for the above, which were initially retained by the Vertol Corporation for flotation and engine test works before being passed onto the US Army when the gas turbines were removed.

Sorry for the confusion. Photos of 53-4370/4397 still required!
