Kobe Hunte
What is it?
cliff731
Kobe Hunte - It is identified correctly as a CH-54 by the photo uploader, Mark Fields. That's to say this one is a Sikorsky CH-54 Tarhe and might also be seen with Sikorsky's model designation, the S-64 Skycrane.

cliff731 - ok....sorry i should of asked more specifically...what is it or what was it used for?

Kobe - Okay... I'm not an expert on this one, but I do know this Sikorsky was a "heavy lift" helicopter in service with the U.S. Army and was used in the Vietnam War and saw use afterwards.

It was also designed to carry mission specific pods, such as medical, photo lab, communications, etc. Many, if not all, of the CH-54 helicopters were eventually transferred to Army National Guard aviation units and all have now been retired from U.S. military service.

Erickson Air-Crane bought the FAA type certificate and manufacturing rights to this helicopter from Sikorsky in the early 1990's.
