Great catch on that SkyCrane. There was one at KEKM last summer, but I didn't have a proper camera. Cheers!!

Thanks again on the comment. That was a bonus as I was walking back to the car to leave when I heard this very loud sound and Luckily was in a reasonable shooting location. This is the kind of chopper that lifts those very large and tall transmission line towers among other things.

I think Erickson purchased the tooling and rights from Sikorsky and still produce parts for them to keep them going!Thanks again for posting!

This rotorcraft was on the news today showing them lifting/installing a 10,000-pound television tower/antenna. Cool!
