Straight From the Tahre Pits

Weird Navy CH54 flew low up the beach this afternoon, exactly window-height, right past the house. Thing reminds me of some giant prehistoric crane fly. Maybe that's why they call it a Sky Crane.

  1. I think this is made by Erikson Sky Crane in the town next door to us. We see them flying over all the time.

  2. Might be; same name, anyway. It's a Sikorsky design, but was probably contracted out to Erickson. They carry every possible kind of cargo, even boxes full of troops. (Let us not speculate on what this may mean about how the military views personnel.)
