Love it. My favorite helicopter. Wish I had one.

Left tire looks soft.

Most of the tires are pretty low on air but it still flies!

Gave this the full five yesterday (it is worth higher), and I was typing out this comment when the phone rang and I never got back 'til today. That high sun straight up overhead could really have had a detrimental impact on the shot but instead, it is a No Factor issue. Exceptionally well handled. And the off-center presentation here is unique, too. (To me, unique is always an important aspect.) !5! and a tip of my photog's cap to you, Chris.

My dad flew an H-34 in Vietnam and we owned an S-58J, and did heavy lift with it. Loved the BIG radial engine. If it wasn't leaking oil, it was out....

Air America started flying The S-58 in January 1961 in Laos with aircraft sold to them by the US Marine Corps Squadron HMR-163.They later were installing The PT-6T to gain more altitude.( Higher altitude + Less machine gun hits)

Love it! Brings back many fond memories of flying the Mighty Wessex - with 2 X Rolls Royce Gnome engines, she was an amazing helicopter to operate.

I worked 2nd Level Maint. on the CH-34A in the Army 59-62', including Germany. The turbine addition served the LA County Sheriff for many years. Had 4 armed ships at Ft. Knox in 59'.

Is this in San Jose, Ca? Nice shot.

Thanks all for the comments.

Gary - The lighting was pretty difficult but I made it work. With just a few minor edits and with the angle of the photo I had it came out surprisingly well.

Jim - Did you own a personal S58J? That's pretty impressive! Gotta love those radials.

tlharnish - Yes this was taken at my local airport Reid Hillview in San Jose, CA. It's still at Reid as of 3 hours ago when I was last there.
