Nice shot, Gary! And that is quite a large bomb! I don't remember ever seeing one like that, let alone having it attached to a helicopter.

Hi, Greg and C.W. Sure is. If only conventional bombs are counted, that one could actually be described as the Vietnam era's MOAB. When compared to the present day MOAB, that one "ain't squat" (lol), but I'll bet it packed quite a wallop back in the 60s. Cliff .. Hey, much Thanx. How do you find the info so quickly? Takes me forever to locate the correct a/c among all those birds listed on J.B.'s site. (Wave)

Gary... you are very welcome, sir! Indeed, you made my search for the info infinitely easy by virtue of providing the complete U.S. Army s/n for this a/c!!! :-)
