Easily one of the coolest manufacturers to operate out of Connecticut is Sikorsky Aircraft. Their headquarters are located right here in Stratford just a few miles away from the CT BOOM offices. Which means a few times a day our writers look out the window to see some of the craziest black hawk helicopters being tested overhead. Every once in a while getting a little TOO close to the side of our building.
There is now a brand new chopper that we will definitely be keeping an eye out for.
Yesterday the Marine Corps held a special event down at Sikorsky’s Development Flight Center in Palm Beach County to debut their most powerful, technologically advanced, biggest load helicopter yet. The CH-53k or by it’s more bad-ass name “King Stallion”.
It’s only a matter of time now before the King Stallion is flying high above us here in Milford.
