    Sikorski...at 1st I thought a sky crane....than seeing the side I thought super puma, but either should have a FAR greater payload, esp. at sea level.

    S-61? is my final guess. Wich still should be able to haul more that 2 cubic yards.

    That job must be stressful! I always enjoy seeing a helicopter thrown into the mix.
