:D

 

The reason I mentioned that it was an Army and not an Air Force Caribou is because there was a major tussle between the Army and AF over "roles and missions" because of the Caribou and the Air Force won that round. Basically the Air Force didn't want the Army having fixed wing aircraft and pitched a fit over aircraft like the C-7 and OV-1. A photo of an Army Bou would put this photo at between 1961 and 1966. Much rarer than a photo of a USAF Caribou. In fact, if you go to the C-7 Caribou Association webpage, there is no mention of the Bou ever even having served in the Army!
