HH60 Backwall with seats attached, two views. Various controls and radio
interfaces visible.

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.
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
gear.

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.
