I presume that with the same registration number, this is the same S62J helo that is now currently at PAF Aerospace Museum at Villamor Air Base (Pasay City).

This photo I believe was also part of Sir Francis' collection.  S62J on board BRP Pag-asa.

The Presidential Flight Sikorsky S-62B/HH-52A VIP helicopter is an interesting example. In service from 1968 to 1975 with the 7001st Presidential Airlift Mission Squadron, it was eventually phased out of service as it only had one engine, which did not meet VIP dual engine safety standards. I imagine it was quite comfortable inside when transporting President Ferdinand Marcos about in 1970s plush style! Unfortunately today it is locked up tight.
