Igor Sikorsky was one (if not the) most important helicopter inventors. His name liveth for ever more. The S92 being the latest creation from the factory that bears his name in the grand old US of A. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Igor_Sikorsky Many years ago, whilst I sat in a presentation by a very upbeat and informative Sikorsky representative to the UK Search and Rescue forum I could not but feel that the wish was that this was to be our future Sea King replacement (not Merlin!). Some of this wish now appears to be true! http://www.defenseindustrydaily.com/british-searchandrescue-a-billion-pound-partnership-02271/ Bob
