Just going through some of my old photos and dusted off some H-3 photos. There's something I really like about this helo and it started back when I used to watch the Apollo recoveries as a kid.

Im a huge fan! My dad had to work on the USAF version for a few weeks and he was most definitely not a fan!  Thanks again Eddie for such great pics  :bow:

I'm glad y'all like them. My oversite Capt. I should be using the proper name when mentioning such a fine aircraft.;)

Here's the last of the decent ones I have left.

worked for Heli-pro(when they existed) doing S-61 shortenings for the heli-log market.
Take an S-61L or N airliner (mostly N models), remove the nose/flight deck, take out a roughly four foot plug, replace nose.
Also the sponsons are removed and replaced with L model fixed gear.
Voila one S-61 Shortsky. Same engine power, lighter weight = more lift capacity.
Taking out the plug gained 1000+ lbs of lift simply by reducing the fuselage area under the rotor disc.

nice seaking pictures, im kind of a big seaking fan myself  :mellow:
i made tons of Belgian Seaking pics, and i even have some RAF & German pics, there's something special about that chopper  :rolleyes:

-all kinds of things.


When i visited the Danish Aviation Museum earlier this summer, they had just received an ex-RDAF S-61. It was freshly painted in the original colours, and looked like it had just come out of Sikorsky's factory. It was fabulous!
