A ship to shore aircraft ferry? Interesting.

EDIT: Correction (or in addition?), an air launch & retrieval system for fighters and search aircraft carried by non-CV ships!

Here's abetter picture of the Hiller J.10, from airliners.net :-

http://www.airliners.net/photo/Hiller-J-10/1054920/L/

Note, the description here says first NOTAR helicopter built in America...
The Cierva W.9 appears to have been slightly earlier, the date of the first flight of the W.9 is unfortunately not recorded, but appears to have been sometime between October 1944 and early 1945.

Other sources on the J.10 :-
