I got a response from a former H-34 crew chief:
Fred Williams "Looking GOOD! I know I've said it on POPASMOKE before, but there is just something about the 34 that just makes you feel an allegiance to it. Kind of like an old sweetheart you never got over. Most of all if you were a Crew Chief. "
I can honestly add to this, " if you were a pilot."
