Would you fly in that thing?

The Canadian Museum of Flight has a couple of choppers. I stand a head taller than the small rusty Honda on the left.

The Sikorsky S-55 below is another kettle of fish. The first transport helicopter to be approved for commercial use, it went into service in the 1950s, helping build the Alcan aluminum smelter in Kitimat. Installing Hydro towers from the power station in Kemano by chopper was another first.
