    This was the first HH3F delivered to the USCG by Sikorsky. It was depected on the cover of the USAF Technical Pubs used by USCG Helicopter support staff. Upper portion of Cockpit was cut off by main rotor blades when helicopter landed short of plateau and pitched up as it encounterd hillside. This was a full ground autorotation training excersise that obviously failed badly and was discontinued as a practiced skill. I crewed in this airframe in 1975 at CGAS Kodiak. The caulking on the seam where they replaced the entire cockpit was clearly visible then Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak
