Photograph article dated August 10, 1960 partially reads, "A lifesaving huskie capable of toting 1,000 pounds of rescue equipment instead of the usual dogsled has been developed at Edwards Air Force Flight Test Center in the Antelope Valley. This huskie, however, is not the canine variety - but the propjet-powered Kaman H-43 Huskie helicopter designed primarily for rescue and fire-fighting operations."
