    I remember S-55 Sikorsky helicopters being used for transportation over NYC during the 50's and 60's. Used to go to Manhattan pier with my Uncle, who was a pilot, and my Dad to watch them take off and land. I fell in love with copters then. Was so happy to discover that Kermit Weeks, owner of Fantasy of Flight just bought the S-55 that made the first passenger / mail delivery in New York in July 1953. I watched the video of it arriving at his facility. It had been rotting in a aircraft museum's parking lot in Compton, California for years. Glad to see Mr. Weeks is going to restore, and hopefully get it flying again.

    Welcome to the site! That is quite a necro-posting from a 4-year-old thread but I liked the vid.
