S-64 civil split[edit]

I have split the information on the civil version of the S-64 from the CH-54 Tarhe page to the "Erickson S-64" page, which I then renamed S-64 Skycrane. The Erickson article was very skimpy in its coverage. I felt it would be better to cover the civil versions of the S-64 on one page than to have them split between two pages. I have also created the Erickson Air-Crane article to cover the company itself, tho at this point it is mostly a copy of the "Erickson S-64" page from before the merger. All 3 articles still need reworking and expansion, especially the company page. - BillCJ 19:39, 3 April 2007 (UTC)


I'm confused: The Article says 9 tons – but shows a picture of a Tarhe lifting a Sheridan tank, which according to the Sheridan Article weighs over 15 tons. What's up with that? --BjKa (talk) 23:41, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

This is likely a lightened M551 to around the 14 ton or less weight. Later versions of S-64s/CH-54s could use four points to carry from 10 tons up to 12.5 tons. So I was told. I don't see the one local ex-CH-54 pilot I know, but you could ask Erickson. (talk) 22:43, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

In the movie Apocalypse now it is even depicted an Huey that holds a patrol vessel, but it's frankly impossible, as those boats weighted around 18,000 lb (!!!) Strange, really. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:32, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

Good image[edit]
