This is NOT so. The Model 1005 is variously found as the "Aerial Carryall" or the "Flying Truck" (the latter name being used for several projects) but it was submitted for an 1951 Army proposal for a midsize flying crane. I don't think I have ever seen a picture of that design. In the same period, Hiller also responded to a Navy request for an aerial-resupply helicopter with the huge "Class HC Heavy Lifter", a collapsible flying crane of tubular construction. Neither of these efforts reached the prototype stage. Obviously, "Class HC" is the category that McDonnell's Model 78 (the HCH) was competing for.hesham said:By the way,
the competition was for cargo and flying crane helicopter,so I suggest
that the Hilleer Model-1005 was involved in it.
Is that the McDonnell 253? Can't wait, anyway... Thanks again!Mark Nankivil said:Wait until you see the STOL DC-9 drawing
Nice pic, but obviously a distorted screen capture, unfortunately.Triton said:
