The man in the black coverall name was Frank B. Jenkins. In the 7th photo down, holding the sign "worlds record broken" was my father, Robert MacKellar III

My neighbor on Whidbey Island, WA is Frank Robinson (Robinson Helicopter)who worked with Sikorsky in the '40's. Just wondering what role the Frank Robinson made, if any, in the VS300. My understanding was that he was a Senior Development Engineer. What do you say?

Question: Does anybody know the length, rotor diameter and height of this first version ?

When you think how long it took man to overcome the need to use ships with sails compared to the Wright Brothers attempt to fly in the early 1900's to Sikorsky's Helicopter flying in the mid 1900's, it certainly is a magnificent achievement in the field of Aero Engineering and shows how far we came in such a short span of time. Today we truly live in a remarkable age.

Long shot, does anyone know where I can obtain a DVD of a 1980s doco called "The Chopper"? I have no idea who produced it, exact year, or who the English-sounding narrator is. It includes interviews with Hanna Reitsch and Bart Kelley (coworker of Arthur Young at Bell), and other techs and pilots, as well as footage of the prototype NOTAR, Apache, Sikorsky ABC and the XV-15 as well as the many variations of the VS-300.

Great information! My father, Les Morris, was the Chief Test Pilot on the Sikorsky VS-300 starting in March, 1941 (and on the XR-4, XR-5 and XR-6 which followed) so I was especially interested in what you have online.

One correction: at http://www.aviastar.org/helicopters_eng/sik_vs-300.php, the caption in the final photo says "Note that the right wheel (white circle) has fallen off, and almost hit the person on the ground." According to the original films (which I have put onto videotape), there were two people on the ground during this demonstration: one in a tan trench coat, the other in a black coverall. They removed the tire while Sikorsky hovered, then backed away as he flew slowly off to the right. It's hard to tell from the still photo what we're seeing, but the person in black coveralls was behind the person in the trench coat as they backed away from the helicopter. It could be the tire in the second person's hands or it could be a portion of his coveralls. In any event, the tire definitely did not fall off!

If you'd like to see a screen shot as they remove the tire, send me an e-mail address and I'd be glad to send it along.
