Retired from Battle

Canon EOS XSi, EF 16-35 f/2.8L @ 16mm, f/8.0, ISO 200

This image was taken on the US Midway back in October of last year, my brother was visiting from out of town and we were doing the touristy stuff that I always said I would do when I first moved out here but I never did!! Production of these helicopters ceased in 1968, last flight was in 1973. As the sign says they were used as Anti-submarine helicopters, however they were also used for civil purposes by other countries.

You can read more about these helicopters on wikipedia.
