@ San Carlos Airport, San Carlos CA
Two Super Stallions from HMH-462 “Heavy Haulers” flew up from Miramar for the 2012 Vertical Challenge helicopter airshow presented by the Hiller Aviation Museum. Here one of the them displays maintenance access. The CH-53 first flew in 1974 and is still in service. This is the largest and heaviest helicopter in the United States military.
