On more than one occasion while I've been fly fishing, an Osprey has seriously out-fished yours truly. They are definitely exacting hunters/fishers.
This odd helo is currently resting on the ramp at KIWA. It is my understanding that this K-1200 is another aerial asset for our wildfires. It may be small, but I believe it is a serious power lifter.
Great shot of a Kaman K-Max. Was built and advertised as an "Aerial Pickup Truck" with a single pilot and it's only mission was to haul stuff. They marketed it for aerial logging, firefighting, and cargo hauling. The unique main rotor gearbox design came from the Kaman HH-43. My father was one of the mechanics that prepped the new HH-43s and SH-2 Seasprites for their first flight at KBDL in the early 60s.
