First helicopter on ship?
I thought that the first-use was aboard KM Koeln (sorry, no umlaut here) in 1941, with Fl 282 Kolibri chopper. Wikipedia ref is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flettner_Fl_282
I recently picked up an old Trident model of USCGC Cobb. She was involved in the first helicopter landings on a ship. I want to to repaint the casting and actually found a color photo of her on Wikipedia. Problem is, I can't figure out what Measure she is painted in. I think it's Measure 22 (with a whole lot of rust!) Any other ideas?
