Into the Heat, Andrews Air Force Base, Maryland, 1965

Runway inferno gives way under the powerful rotor wash of an HH-43B Huskie helicopter. Two asbestos-clad firemen, spraying foam on the flames, move in for a practice rescue at Andrews Air Force Base, Maryland. A fire-defeating Huskie helped save tow of the three crewmen in the crash last June (1964) of a B-58 at the International Air Show in Paris.
