Enjoyed talking with Charlie and Bill about the S-60 restoration. Will be a real treat to see when completed. The Army Transportation Museum at Fort Eustis, VA has a nicely presented CH-37 Mojave Helicopter on display. This class of helicopter was a real "Cargo Beast" and the USMC had a variant that operated on Navy ships. Easy now to see how Igor and Staff morphed the S-56 / CH-37 components into the piston powered Sky Crane prototype. Lessons learned from the S-60 eventually led to Sikorsky's turbine powered S-64 (CH-54 Tarhe for the Army)and HH-53 versions for the Navy, USMC, and Air Force. Appropriate that 50+ years after the S-60 mishap (crew was not injured), that this historic aircraft is being stored to fine showcase condition. Mike

The Connecticut Air & Space Center in Stratford, CT acquired the S-60 from the New England Air Museum in 2010. It is currently undergoing a full static restoration at our facility.

Who is this "we" that possess it and are restoring it?

I believe the first flight of the S-60 was 25 March 1959, not 2 March 1969.

We have this one of a kind aircraft and are in the beginning phases of restoring it.
