HUS-1 / UH-34D Seahorse 149371
29jun15 I found 149371 parked behind a helo hanger off of State Route 191 in the town of Sunsites, Arizona. Is parked with a number of other H-34s. In most cases are missing their engines and tail rotors. While some are painted in the mate green, Marine Corps paint scheme from it's days in South Viet Nam, others seem to have paint schemes from who knows where. The only BUNO that was visible was 149371. A number of years ago, this site had half a dozen USGS H-52s also parked. They are now parked behind the local Baptist Church(?)
