Yesterday I was outside and heard a helicopter, not really sound but that thumping you pick up when you're half deaf. From a distance it appeared to be a 34. Sure enough when it went directly over, at no more than 500', I could see that it was one of the turbine planes Sikorsky built later.
I seemed to be less noisy and it's speed seemed quite a bit faster. Does anyone know how much speed the old girl would pick up with the turbine.
I was in VMO-2, not a 34 squardron, but the 34 still looked good.
