A single HSS-1 Seabat was delivered in 1957, when (judging by the code) this photo may have been taken. 0407/2-HT-10(c.n.58-611) is seen here with the Escuadrilla Aeronaval de Helicópteros operating out of Base Aeronaval Comandante Espora -Bahía Blanca. She was written off in a pre-flight fire during 1961, whilst wearing the code 2-H-21. Again, i presume the scheme is all Yellow/orange?
