    S-61 Sea King

    As always, may thanks to my friends at 5 State Helicopters.
    This job was at the Peterbuilt 18 wheeler plant in Denton TX.
    61 lifts job. The big steel fan assemblies weighed in at a hefty 9500 lbs!
    The total flight time for the job was about 2.5 hours, during which 391 gallons of Jet A was used. Yuck. That's my yearly consumption!

    The helicopter is a Sikorsky S-61. The same helicopter as the one used by the President of the United States, Marine One and the military as the SeaKing. (Jolly Green Giant if Coast Guard)













    OK.... I got bored copying all those links.

    You can see the rest of them by clicking on the picture below.
    I took 400 shots... I got 28 processed. Will work on more later.

    Yes.
    The ones with a nice blue sky were shot with the 70/300 lens and a circular polarizer.
    Good catch!
