I'd love to see those pics.
I flew 52's outta Traverse City and Miami Airstation.
The last Miami.
Did 4 rescue missions.
My first on Halloween night 1979.
Found out February 2021 it had made the New York Times front page.
Way better rescue platform than the Plastic Puppy as fat as I'm concerned.
The Puppy can land on the water, once.
You can't stand up in it which has to be hell on your knees and back when handling the basket coming in loaded given with a fair sized adult your handling plus 2 hundred pounds.
Easily one of the best times of my life was the almost 5 years of my enlistment.
Especially when it was me and an Lt flying as the only crew.

My first rescue as an AD3 52 flight mechanic/ hoist operator was on Halloween night 1979.
It was a 1am launch up to east of Lake Occachobee involving hoisting 2 nen off a train and a family of 5 including a 19 year old pregnant female.
An FPL 3 million gallin resevior dike had burst after a major storm had passed over the area.
I found out last February 2021 that it had made the front page of the New York Times.
They mase one mistake claiming we rescued them of a barn when in actuality it was their house roof. I went on to do 3 more rescue missions out of Miami Airstation. Plus two body searh missions over Tampa Bay when CGCC Blackthorn sank and the Skyway bridge collapsed after being hit by a merchant ship.
It was a way better rescue platform than the Plastic Puppy that replaced it.
You could stand up in it and it had way more room to manuver while do hoist operations.

I was at several air stations in my tour. Flew in C-131s and H52s at Brooklyn as my last duty station from 81-83.

I thought I was getting punished getting sent to Brooklyn Air but it was the best Air Station ever while Bobby Wilkes was the CO. Loved the H-52 but loved my crewmates more.

We flew a lot of missions and worked hard to maintain flight readiness, but we had so much fun doing it together.

Hi Tom,
Flew in 52's at CGASBKLYN from 69-72. AE but worked the flight line most of the time.

Hi John
We served together at Borinquen PR on HH3Fs. I was at Corpus Christi, Tx and ARSC with 52's. Was a good Helo. If by chance you see this contact me at bearbait69@live.com

I flew as aircrew on the HH-52A Coast Guard Air Stations in Astoria, OR, Miami, FL, and Port Angeles, WA. It was a neat helo to ride around in with legs hanging out the door or getting to play pilot many times. We flew many times with only one pilot, 1 crewman, so the enlisted aircrew got to fly it from the left seat often. It was a good helicopter and a nice platform to hoist from. Just wish it had a little more power at times. From a maintenance view, I found it easy to maintain. Saw one that was restored and was taking off from Eugene (EUG) OR a few years ago as I flew in with my FedEx Caravan. Would love to have gotten in it for a few minutes.


Luis Brenes, e-mail, 12.01.2010 03:06

Does anyone can inform me about the fuel comsumption in galons per hour of this helicopter? Tks.

Does anyone have any data on serial number 62-029? Has been reported as to Thailand, but I think not!

There currently is one of these being operated on the island of Roatan, Bay Islands Honduras as part of a medivac operation. I have photos if anyone wishes them.

Wondering about the CT 58 engines, Couldn't find much on line when I searched. Was it rated @ shaft hp? what is it's weight. Does it produce much thrust as a conventional turbine or did they even use it that way? Looking for a cost effective candidate for an experimental project My ignorance about turbines is only SLIGHTLY overshadowed by my curiosity.. Thanks for your help.John


Ian, e-mail, 20.08.2007 12:48

I'm sure thee used to be one of these at Durban Airport, originally operated by Court Line Helicopters and was still operating in early 90's. Can anyone confirm and advise what happened to it.
