67-18452 - "Booney Bus"

 

It is believed SP4 Davis is pictured in the photograph above completing the artwork on the Booney Bus. SP4 Davis did most, if not all, the nose art for the 132nd ASHC aircraft between 1970 and 1971.

Some great stuff there guys! I'll see if I can dig out some others. Been busy as hell lately, but I've got thousands of pics of Nam Helicopters. Ray (Rotorwash) has hundreds of thousands!

The "Fannies" were dedicated support to D/151 (Ranger) in 1969. I've got several photos of some of the Indiana Rangers with Annies birds. Unfortunately, I don't have permission to post them from the original owner, but there were several with the nose art! Many "Fannies" birds had the twin M60s in the doors.
