Hughes 300: Félix !!!

The 300 is one of the more versatile, yet in some ways unsung, light helicopter ever built. Jacques Cousteau knew that; his RV Calypso operated a string of 300’s -five if I’m not mistaken. Cousteau’s crew jokingly nicknamed all of them “Félix”.
Revisitin’ some of his alluring TV series. The mistery of the sea, the gadgets, the adventure,…life sure looked so promising then. Childhood dreams.

The man himself here in one of those “Félix” with its pilot, Bob Braunbeck.
