  • Link to Article About 1952 Sikorsky HRS Mid-air Collision

    In October 1952, my late father was involved in what I believe is the first ever, helicopter-to-helicopter mid-air collision.
    My article about the flight is in the current issue (June/July) of Air & Space Smithsonian magazine. Here's the link:
