In  2016 marks the 100th year of U.S. Coast Guard aviation, and much like the Navy did in 2011, this monumental anniversary will be marked by a series of retro paint schemes applied to some of their aircraft.

The first in that series is this MH-60T Jayhawk painted just like HH-34 Seahorse, R-5 Dragonfly and HH-19 Chickasaw helicopters during the ‘40s, ‘50s and ‘60s.

The Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter with a yellow paint scheme lands at Coast Guard Air Station Astoria, Ore., Jan. 15, 2016. The yellow Jayhawk helicopter is one of two centennial aircraft that will be stationed in the Pacific Northwest along with an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter that will be located at Air Station North Bend, Ore.
