As per the contract, Exelis will fabricate and assemble the composite sponsons, the tail rotor pylon
and the horizontal stabilizer of the CH-53K heavy lift helicopter.
The vessel was also carrying the tail rotor pylon
and other parts of the aircraft recovered from 300 feet below the surface.
The aft rotor pylon
of the CH-47F makes teardown and assembly easier, for rapid deployment
The second prototype is now being flown with the uprated engines and modified tail, plus a redesigned main rotor pylon
, main rotor blades with drooped tips and an extended chord, and a modified main rotor hub.
Pay attention to the pilot static tubes when covering the nose and windshield as you try to hook the main rotor pylon
