Piasecki HRP Rescuer series






Last updated on: April 8, 2018

This is just for those helos that received Navy/Marine Corps Bureau Numbers.

This is a never-ending work-in-progress and any help would be appreciated. Information on these helos is rather difficult to locate online and this work will remain incomplete unless you, my readers, can help me out. Please feel free to pass along any information that you might have to me at nmdecke@hotmail.com.

At the end of this page is a list of people who have graciously offered their help. Thank you all very much!
