Various updates for several H-43 pages. At this moment nearly all webpages from the old H-43 website have been re-arranged and placed within this new website. In the coming period of time I will place some pages for the F-102A part of my website.

02 May 2016

This new website is now on line. Not only this website contains the pages of the old website h43-huskie.info , but I have taken the opportunity to include webpages devoted to other parts of my aviation related interest.

During the 1980ties I  spent a lot of time researching the service history of the Convair F-102A Delta Dagger in Europe. This resulted in a book which was published in 1991 by Squadron/Signals Publications.

In Feb 2009 I published my first book related to the H-43  : "Kaman H-43 Huskie - A Lifetime after Military Service". See opening page for details.

Most updates for this moment go to the page "H-43 Preserved" , with a lot of new pictures put in sub-pages.
