The litter basket carried by the HH60 carried along the right wall in a
vertical position. Behind that is a dart shaped beacon which is droppable.
Many people ask if this is some kind of missile!
the radio rack is directly behind the pilots seat and is quite complex.

There is a lot of gear inside the Jayhawk, and not nearly as much room as in the standard UH60. I was sitting in the crewman's seat along the left wall when I took these pictures.  Interior color is a blue-grey, more blue than grey, with some anti skid on the floor that was quite worn.

Close in view of left side main wheel and brake line. Quick disconnect
between fuse side with flex line, hard line down the length of the landing
Twin sliding window and Jayhawk twin pylon for long range tanks

all Hawks.

If you feel there is a need for descriptions for this walk around, then feel free to type them up and quote the photo numbers above and forward the descriptions to Steve Bamford, so they can be put up into this walkaround.  We could really use our viewers help with this.  An expert on this aircraft could write much better descriptions than we could.
