This photo was taken by my Grandfather. He was one of the engineers that designed this aircraft. This is the first prototype and it was actually flown by Igor Sikorsky on a test flight. Never went in to production. This may be the only photo that exists of this helicopter. I have newspaper and company documentation telling the story of this aircraft. 6005 Eastern Ave, Baltimore.

As a pilot with quite a few hours in various Sikorsky models, I can't say I'm sorry this one never went into production...especially since it does not seem to have a rotor system!!

Where is the roto? this machine or thing must have
flown like a brick. looks more like a small car but
still a very good picture considering the year it was taken.
thanks for sharing.
