INAEC Sikorsky S-43 color footage!

I just had to share this link I found earlier, it's supposedly the only known film of the INAEC Sikorsky S-43 NPC-31 operating in the Philippines around the mid-1930s.

https://www.facebook.com/mrf4paf/vid...1552632216760/

Originally from criticalpast.com this is even more rare given that it's in color, not colorized. I've tried to get Bruno Vanhecke interested in doing this particular recolor for his S-43 model.

Anyway, I've grabbed as many screen shots as possible so I can do an authentic recolor given the chance, also to archive photos in case the video gets taken down.

Maybe you should bribe Aaron to do it.

It doesn't seem to be on your project list, yet.

Really cool.

I live 10 minutes from the Udvar-Hazy Annex and could get Bruno or Aaron more pictures if needed.

My understanding is that the one at Udvar Hazy is a JRS-1, while the one at Pima is an actual S-43 painted up as a JRS-1.
