Roland - by late in the war our bases in England were not nearly as vulnerable to attack, so camo no longer needed as much from that standpoint, and the bomber formations had such a massive visual signature from the exhaust contrails that camo did not really matter much in the air either. I suppose if you were a straggler flying alone you would want camo, but for the most part late in the war it was just not as necessary.

Kobe - Okay... I'm not an expert on this one, but I do know this Sikorsky was a "heavy lift" helicopter in service with the U.S. Army and was used in the Vietnam War and saw use afterwards.

It was also designed to carry mission specific pods, such as medical, photo lab, communications, etc. Many, if not all, of the CH-54 helicopters were eventually transferred to Army National Guard aviation units and all have now been retired from U.S. military service.

Erickson Air-Crane bought the FAA type certificate and manufacturing rights to this helicopter from Sikorsky in the early 1990's.

At first glance, those trees looked like clouds!

Kobe Hunte - It is identified correctly as a CH-54 by the photo uploader, Mark Fields. That's to say this one is a Sikorsky CH-54 Tarhe and might also be seen with Sikorsky's model designation, the S-64 Skycrane.

Given the lack of windows, except forward beneath the cockpit, and the appearance of what appears to be an aft clam shell style hatch, I assume this heavy lifter was intended to carry internal cargo. Also, paint scheme and lack of mil markings implies commercial, non-military. Soviets developed a number of unique aircrafts in the 60's and 70's which belied the common perception that they copied western designs. Thank you for marvelous photo submission.

Just to clarify actually this a/c was landing at the the time my apologies about that. This a/c is painted in the colors of Lt. Robert Hampton Gray R.C.N. attached to H.M.S. Formidable during the Pacific Campaign in which he was shot down and killed while attacking a Japanese destroyer receiving The Victoria Cross.

My father was a navy pilot from 1943-1946, then flew in the USNR through the early 50's. He flew the Hellcat, usually as a night-fighter pilot. I once asked him if he had flown Corsairs. He said that he had flown them a few times, but he did not like landing them. He commented on the position of the pilot and the long nose creating difficulties, and the landing gear being a little less stable for carrier landings. I am not real clear, but that is what I remember from a conversation 30 years ago. He also told me that his unit VF-33 flew Corsairs out of Guadalcanal, before he joined it.
