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.

    You probably won’t see the new King Stallion flying around here any time soon. It is being built at the WPB plant.
