  • Need help finding location of this photo...

    Pictured below is the Sikorsky HRS, Bureau Number 130252 currently on display at the Flying Leatherneck Museum in San Diego. The museum recently completed an absolutely beautiful and accurate restoration of the aircraft. BuNo 130252 was placed into storage at DM on November 14, 1966. Its aircraft history card shows it "transferred" to Quantico on February 4, 1967 and SOC 4 days later.

    My question is where is it on display in this photo? The A4D-2 (BuNo 142897) next to it offers no help as it doesn't appear to exist anymore. It's obviously very close to the water as evidenced by the CV in the background. Could this be Quantico or someplace closeby or somewhere in San Diego? As Quantico was headquarters for the then Marine Air-Ground Museum, the "transfer" may have been for paperwork purposes only, not the physical location of the aircraft.

    Any help or thoughts are appreciated.

      There's a "something" Lounge sign in the backround on the brickbuilding in the backround. Looks to be off base..Maybe Pensacola?

          Was unable to download the photo...if it be museum quality, I'd daresay P-Cola or the Quantico.
