Bryan Eagan was involved with HSS-2 FIP ASW Pilot training program. On Sept 6-8, 1961 he led five HSS-2 Helicopters from Key West, Florida to Ream Field, San Diego, CA. Over 17 flying hours at an average ground speed of 130 knots (150 mph), overnight stops at Ellyson Field, Pensacola, Florida and Yuma, Arizona. It was the first delivery of the new twin-turbine, amphibious helicopters to operational sqyadrons, and the fastest helicopter crossing of the country ever made.

I served with HS-3 (Norfolk NAS) 62 - 64. They had just transitioned to SeaKings and were the 1st operational squadron on the east coast to do so.

I need to know where I can find what the decibles are/were for the Tutor CT 114 (Canadian Snowbirds), the Sikorsky CHSS-2 Sea King, and CP 121 Tracker. My husband worked "very close" to these and is having hearing problems. Thank you

I served in the Navy from 1966-1970 as an ATN-2 and was assigned to HS-3 from 1967-1970. I became a second crewman in apx. 1968 and flew many missions in the SH-3D. What a great aircraft it is. Altho we did lose one aircraft during my tour along with three of the crew, the co-pilot survived. This occured when the plane flew thru a large stream of water during take-off from an irrigation system at a Florida base. Along with great memories of many friends and shipmates we managed to be called the teen-aged squadron and wore the Efficiency E with two hash marks. We made many memorable cruises aboard four ships and recovered Apollo-9 space capsule with LCOL McDivitt,LCOL Scott, and Russell L. Schweickart aboard. I am proud to have been a small part of the HS-3 Tridents. Go Navy.

Hi
I work as a prison officer in a workshop in Wheatfield prison in Dublin and one of the trainees/prisoners is looking for plans to build a metal model of a sikorsky s 61.I'm having no luck trying to get plans so I/we would be most grateful for any assistance with this.
Many thanks in advance.
Joe

I was an Aviation Electrician at NAS Pt. Mugu from 10/71 through 12/74. We had a specially configured H-3, for drone recovery. It had a hoist mounted inside and two long (~20 ft) poles, one on each side, that were carried alongside the hull, but could be swung straight down after takeoff. (I don't know if the hoist was something special or if it was the "normal hoist" used for the sonar bouys - All our H-3's were used for drone recovery and SAR, so this was the only we had with a hoist.) The hoist cable was attached to hooks that were held by the poles. The idea was to catch the drones while they were dropping towards the ocean in their parachutes. (If they didn't go into the seawater, it was cheaper/easier to refurbish them.) This H-3 had a special designation, but I don't recall what it was, and I don't see anything listed above that might be it. I was told it was the only one like it in the fleet. Unfortunately, it had an accident trying to catch a drone and was lost, along with the pilot, in November 1973. The crew wore parachutes when attempting to catch the drones. The co-pilot and crewman parachuted out and survived.

I am a retired Naval Aviator and hove over 500 landing on a carrier, 200 at night. I picked up the first H-3 at Sikorsky, IN Conn. for Helicopter Antisubmarine Squadron 4 and flew it to San Diego in Nov. 1963.
Question: I found them once and then lost therm. Where can I get free helicopter ring tones for my cell phone.
Thank you

Your info on the S-61A shows the type being order in 1970 yet the first reported loss in service with the TUDM was in April 1969. Comment?

Also does anyone have identities of the first four losses whilst in Malaysian service.

Missing Malaysian military copter found, all 6 crew dead
(Kyodo) _ A military helicopter that went missing five days ago while flying over Malaysia's thick tropical jungle has been found with all six crew who were on board dead, government officials announced Tuesday.
The official news agency Bernama quoted an air force spokesman as saying the wreckage of the Sikorsky S-61 helicopter was spotted in a deep ravine hidden in dense forest in the central state of Pahang on Tuesday afternoon.

Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak told a press conference that preliminary reports suggest bad weather was to blame for the crash.

Najib, who is also defense minister, said the difficult terrain made it hard for the search and rescue team to find the chopper that was first reported missing 10 minutes after it took off from Kuala Lumpur last Friday as it headed toward an air base in Kuantan, the Pahang state capital.

Efforts are ongoing to retrieve the bodies of the five men and one woman who were on board.

Despite the accident, Najib said there is no immediate plan to discontinue service of the air force's ageing fleet of around 20 Sikorsky helicopters, most of which are over 30 years old. ADVERTISEMENT



"I will wait for the report from the Royal Air Force before deciding," he said.

Ron, try E-bay. I just checked and there were a couple listed but you had better hurry.


Max Cox, e-mail, 28.03.2007 15:26

I was in HS-5 and HS-151 (combined HS5 and HS11 for a Med cruise) and HS-1 from 1970-1977. I was wondering if there exists total number of lives lost in H3's while it was in service from approximately 1957 until 198X for comparison with the new Osprey...


Ron Rutan, e-mail, 13.03.2007 15:03
