I found a picture of another of the US Army Special Forces/CIA.

This paint scheme doesn't look much like a military aircraft does it? The only thing military on the outside is
the s/n on the tail and the radio antenna.

Added color picture above of “63-13177” it is captioned Maryland Army National Gaurd 1963 (probably 70th Regiment​ 1st Special Forces). So this changes the History paragraph it appears to have left Ft. Bragg in '63, only problem it wasn't built until 02/64 so there is an error in the caption at least on date.

History paragraph now; Ft. Bragg NC '64, assigned to MD ANG, Baltimore, Maryland (probably 70th Regiment​ 1st Special Forces) until '?, fate ?

The guess was that it would have went to the Utah ANG,

Several U-10s including c/n 558 and 616 also went to 135th Air Commandos, Martin Airport, Baltimore, Maryland MD AFNG according to Wicipedia. I have only identified c/n 558 and 616

Anyone know if more Helios than c/n 630 were Maryland Army National Gaurd Helios

I had Maryland ArmyNG mixed up with Maryland AirForceNG?
