Combat Search and Rescue

This is a Sikorsky MH-53M "Pave Low IV" helicopter, employed for combat search and rescue operations. It was designed for low-level, long-range missions. "Pave Low" was the project name that modified these helicopters to be able to operate in any weather conditions, day or night. The earliest models were produced in 1967. All are retired as of 2008. This is another photo from the Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson, Arizona.
Super capture!

@vera365 - Thanks, Vera. Yes, it would probably strike some fear in me if I saw this coming at me!
