Western Worlds Largest Helicoptor

Posted by blueheronbobcat on March 25, 2010

This is the Sikorsky MH-53E helicoptor, also designated as the Sikorsky S-80, on exhibit recently at the Tico Warbirds airshow in Titusville Florida. It’s a huge machine used by the military.

I didn’t get to see it in action but based on information I found on the web: Sailors and Marines commonly refer to the Super Stallion as the “Hurricane Maker” because of the downwash the helicopter generates. (ref: CH-53E_Super_Stallion )
