Photo Comment

The Evergreen museum claims that this is the fifth S-51 built and this appears to be correct, meaning that it was one of the first commercially operated helicopters in 1946 as NC92803 - see other picture. After bankruptcy of the pioneering HAT company it was sold to the USCG as 233, later 1233.
