USS Hugh Purvis (DD-709) with QH-50C DASH alongside, Virginia Capes, 1962
Here we see the Allen M Sumner class destroyer USS Hugh Purvis (DD-709) with a QH-50C DASH (Drone Anti-Submarine Helicopter) alongside, off the Virginia Capes during tests on 15 December 1962, the year before it entered into service. However the DASH proved unreliable and half of the US Navy's machines were lost in incidents at sea.
