Perhaps a first stab at the S-61R "Pelican" which appeared two years later. Or maybe a 'least mod' spin-off of the S-61R specifically for Weser?

Interesting machine, either way. Thanks Hesham!

Dear Boys and Girls, here is a picture with a caption in French of the Sikorsky S-61D cargo helicopter "project"......

The picture comes from the 24th February 1961 issue of Les Ailes......
