Lizard already answered the question...
That's Lucille, I've got a bunch of pics of Icabod
It's an aircrane or "skycrane" and have been owned by a couple different companys. Colson Aircrane uses them as well as Ericson, Evergreen in the U.S. and the U.S. Military has used them. I believe Ericson has the rights to build them at this time but don't quote me.
Ultimate Heavy lift helicopter North America has. 20,000 lbs. lifting cap.

If I had a chopper near by, I'd definately arrange some trips. When I'm working a little closer to home some day we'll set some stuff up.[cheers]

Awesome pics Liz! [cheers] That "skycrane" is really impressive. As a mechanic, it makes me wonder "where do you even start"! Wow!
