CoolPix - Airshow: Erickson Air-Crane Oshkosh 2010 Water Drop

(click pic for hi-res)

 As the airshow season for 2010 is drawing to a close, I thought I'd go back and pick some of my better pix from the summer and repost them in the CoolPix hi-res format. Like this one here of the big orange Erickson Air-Crane named Goliath... I put this pic up in a small size in the OSH10 picstream #5 post, but seeing it here in a really big size gives it a lot more impact. This immaculate Sikorsky S-64 looked even more interesting with all that water being dropped!

 More airshow pix from the summer will be popping up as CoolPix posts before long. I think it's a good way to help us hang in there as autumn will soon be settling in to winter. The good news is that the 2011 airshow season is right around the corner : )

They build those about 5 miles away from my shop. Had 4 of them fly over on thier way north the other day, made me wish I had my camera.

I was a U.S. Army flight engineer on one of these at Fort Sill Oklahoma in the mid-70's. It was a sad day when the Army stood this aircraft down. We knew it as the CH-54B Tarhe. She was slow (100 knots or less. Eighty or eighty five most of the time) but, she would lift about anything you tied to it. Boeing kept up-rating the CH-47 Chinook and finally when they created the D model it would lift about as much as the CH-54.
