    The Sikorsky CH-54 was a large heavy lift helicopter introduced in 1962 for the US Army as a ‘sky crane’ for moving heavy loads in difficult terrain.

    The CH-54 was capable of carrying modular troop accommodation units, and other bulky cargo up to 20,000 lb (9.000 Kg) The CH-54 was developed into the S-64 fire-fighting helicopter.

    The CH-54 was used to recover downed and damaged aircraft in Vietnam and even as a bomber to clear space to build airfields.

    This example is an CH-54 of the US Army 1962.
