Hi guys wish I could fly or ride in choppers all day that would be AWESOME...
Anyways can anybody identify this one? Took this picture while in ABQ only saw it a couple times and can not find info on it anywhere. Have found some that are kinda close but not this exact one.
It is driving me nuts because this thing was cool, all stealthy looking and quiet with a really short tail.
Sorry for the bad pic but it was hard to catch and didn't have time to focus all the way.

Looks like it might be a Sikorsky S92

Oh ya that looks really close. Not quite what I saw, but definitely a variation.. Cool thanks man I have not been able to find it anywhere. Are these really quiet? The one I saw you could not hear unless it was directly above you?

Thanks canukame that is definitely the bird. The one I saw was a little different bit that is normal for Kirkland. Don't know why I had such a hard time finding it. Once I punched in the name it was all there. Thank you..

We've gotten two EC130 tailbooms in from france that were repaired poorly, absolutely packed with FOD and put in the cheapest (interior structure collapsed onto the tailboom inside) crates possible.

The one we got in this week was supposed to just be turned around and sent back out, now we have to do a bunch of work on it first.

You would figure at that many posts-he would know. If it was 100 or less, I would give him a pass.

Self policing is more effective than waiting for the calvary.
