Sikorsky s-61B SH-3A Sea King

In an effort to reduce noise-production this helicopter was fitted with 6 main and 10 tail rotorblades, and engine mufflers. Results much have been disappointing or modification too costly, because it was not introduced on production models. Despite the poor quality of the photo, very interesting.
