S-61250 viewsThe visit by President Kennedy to Cork in 1963 brought a number of helicopters which we went to the airport to see. In this fuzzy low tech black and white image, two S-61s are departing from the main ramp, reg nos 150611 and 150613. Of note is the fact that they are operated by the US Army rather than the more familiar Marines.G Frost33333
