Aviation Photo #0153335 Sikorsky S-61L - New York Airways

30 of 274
This picture was taken from an American Airlines 747 on arrival from San Juan. I had the opportunity to fly the Sikorsky (as a passenger) from JFK to Pan Am Building. As we desended on the roof of the Pan Am Bldg. it looked as if the buildings were rising to meet the Sikorsky. It was a life time experience that I will never forget.

Well lighted, well focused, detailed, luggage doors open adds interest as S-61L shots I have seen usually do not show that. Old Sikorsky R&D Engineer on this series of copters.
