Sikorsky CH-37B Mojave '50644'

Designed as an assault transport for the US Marines, the US Army placed an order for 94, following successful trials. Four of the type served in Vietnam recovering downed aircraft, with US$7.5 million being recovered.

The CH-37 was the last piston-engined heavy-lift helicopter, and was soon replaced by the turbine powered CH-54.

Full serial 55-0644.
