This robust old Sikorsky CH-37B Mojave was powered by two 2,100 HP radial piston engines. She could carry up to 26 troops or vehicles and other large gear that loaded via ramps through the clamshell front doors under the cockpit. This was the first twin engine large helicopter built in the USA. It was also the last piston powered machine as all subsequent large twin engine helicopters were turbine powered. Some nice cockpit details.
