The photos on this page depict aircraft that shared ramp space with VR-24 aircraft at Port Lyautey and Naples. They were contributed by Jack Bolger, who served with the squadron in Port Lyautey, and by Bill Lester who was with VR-24 Det Naples.

Anyone who has photos or information that he/she cares to share with "shipmates" and friends is encouraged to send them to Dick Prather, Webmaster/Editor of the VR-24 website.

A rough photo, but the lines of the trio of NAS Port Lyautey aircraft are visible. The line-up includes the Station SNB, UF (later HU-16), and R4D.

Tail markings of "LA" identify this line-up of P2Vs as aircraft from VP-5, the "Mad Foxes", home-based at NAS Jacksonville.

The Station SAR helo, a twin-rotor Piasecki HUP-2, came to grief just before Jack Bolger took this photo. Not enough info is available to identify the circumstances or cause of this accident, which occurred at Port Lyautey in September 1957.
