During our transition From Erickson Alaska to Pathfinder Aviation one of the final salute to us was the time our S-64 Erickson Skycrane came to Anchorage!
The S-64 is the civilian model of the Sikorsky CH54B. Erickson bought the Type certificate in '92 and has made over 1300 different changes from the CH54B. Our S-64 was an original CH-54B that came to Anchorage for a construction contract!
It made two one coming from our HQ in Oregon when it came to Anchorage, refueling in Bellingham WA.
Please enjoy these shots of me next to our Crane and the S64!
