    Did you push it backwards to see if the wheels straighten up? It's possible the axles are not aligned as they are supposed to be and no one ever noticed.

    At the time the two S-64s were in the paint shop, the mock up of the CH-53 was in the experimental shop. This was also about the same time that I met the man himself, Igor Sikorsky.

    Excellent, thanks Bill. I've always had a fascination with the S-64 as I witnessed the very first time that the rotor was turned on serial #1 in 1962 while I was working at Sikorsky. Did you know...

    Who did he make the claim to? That 40 hours is only between the pilot and his pen when he completes the blanks on his operations limitations and the page in his airplane's log book. There is no one...

    I noticed that courierguy's ailerons extend to the wing tips with nothing else outboard. The lower side of the wing has a higher air pressure than the upper. Therefore the air has a tendency to flow...
