Artist's Description

In 1958, Sikorsky began designing the S-60 as a prototype “flying crane” helicopter. The S-60 utilized the transmission, rotor system and piston engines from the CH-37/S-56. The fuselage of the S-60 was a simple “pod-and-boom” design with the engines mounted in side pods. The crew cabin was mounted in the nose, with aft-mounted controls for the co-pilot to use during loading and unloading operations. Up to 12,000 pounds (5,443 kg) of outsized cargo such as vehicles could be slung beneath the boom, while passengers and other cargo could be carried in a large interchangeable pod that attached to the fuselage. This was also Igor Sikorsky’s last design he supervised. The intel acquired from the S-60 went into the production version, the S-64 Skycrane.

This unique one-of-a-kind prototype was given to the New England Air Museum in the 60’s. In 2010 NEAM donated the rotocraft to the Connecticut Air & Space Center for restoration. The design on this shirt is the official logo of the restoration of the craft. When purchasing a shirt, a percentage will go back to funding the restoration of this historic bird.
