Sikorsky CH-3 "Jolly Green Giant" in HDR

Sikorsky CH-3 "Jolly Green Giant" in HDR, originally uploaded by Carolinadoug.

One of my favorites and most viewed Flickr photos.

This is a late 50's era CH-3 transport helicopter.  Taken at the Carolinas Aviation Museum.  This Sikorsky CH-3 was used in 1986 to assist in the recovery efforts following the explosion of the Space Shuttle Challenger on launch.  Three shots at 0 and +/-2ev were combined in Photomatix and enhanced with Topaz Adjust.  Here is the interior.
