Another low resolution preview E-bay photo.

This is c/n 1262 as N42022 while with the USDA before being returned to the USAF.

Opened as the 3rd photo in the queue above.

Opened as #2 in the line up above.

Looking at the first picture it looks like that is a photo of '14360' shortly after going from unpainted aluminum and being given a fresh coat of paint. Possibly before going to storage?

It was pointed out that the Helio visible in the background of this picture has the merit ribbon and Air National Guard 'Minuteman' badge,  while  '14360' does not.

Here is a newly found photo of c/n 1262,

When downloading, the file name is, U-10D 66-14360 135 SOG Baltimore 4 September 1967.jpg (note date) the acceptance date of a/c is 7/67 this file name date is 9/67 so apparently the floats were just installed before it goes to the 129th ACSquadron as a (floatplane) later 129th SOS CA Air Force National Guard

MY file doesn't even show it going to the 135th SOG apparently this is where and when the floats were installed.
