There is a picture of this exact HH-3e green giant from 1968 in DaNang South Vietnam, identified by its serial number HH-3E 66-13290 in wikipedia under "operation ivory coast" it is shown as a identical helo to the one used in the mission. It states the picture is also published in a book Air War over Vietnam Vol II page 18 1983 ISBN 0853685738 it states the USAF as its source.

290 is now the gate guardian @ Gabreski Field in Long Island. Apparently the Smithsonian lost interest.

3290 was part of the 1st SOW (Green Hornet) squadron after that group was restarted in 1975/76 at Hurlburt Field, FL. I know because I was her crew chief in the time between when she arrived and my departure from the service in July 1979. Looks like she may be destined for the Smithsonian.

Aircraft 290 was piloted by Capt Jim Parks and Lt Sullivan. I was on the rescue crew to hoist them off the rooftops.

This acft was stationed aat Osan AB ROK in 1984. That spring during heavy rains while on a rescue mission picking up flood victoms it had an engine failure in a hover during a hoist operation. Crashing straight down onto three seprate roof tops near Seoul. All on board survived with no major injuries. The acraft had to be lifted from the buldings by an U.S. Army CH-47 and sling loaded by the 47 to Osan. It was then shipped back to Pensacola Fl. to be repaired. I left Korea in July of 1985 and it was still in Fla. I also have photos of the crash site and of the acft being slung back to Osan AB.
