Kaman Rotor Tips logo

Through this chapter I would like to take you to some exciting and now historic articles which once were published in the many pages of the magzine which the Kaman Aerospace Corporation published between April 1960 and September-October 1975. I have the permission to reprint these articles. Great credit have to be given to the editorial committee. Mr. Ev Hoffman was editor of all Rotor Tips from the very first issue published in April 1960 up to the issue of January-February 1974. Mr. Dan A. D'Amelio took over the Managing Editor position. (RotorTips-Mar-Apr74, page 21)

The articles are unique because of the great variety of missions described, but certainly also because of the mentioning of names of the crewmembers who did all those jobs. I am certain that these persons and their former collegues will enjoy reading these reports again.

Unfortunately the reports are not marked with an exact date, only the date of the particular RotorTips issue in which it was published, gives us a timeframe for the event. Readers might be able to give me the (more) exact day-month-year of these events, please email :  h43-huskie@ragay.nl
