VH-53D


1970





Sikorsky produced two VH-53D as Executive Support transports for HMX-1. They can be configured to transport personnel or cargo. As such, they were not intended to carry the President, but rather to carry the press and other VIPs that travel with the President. Supplemented, but not replaced, by two CH-53Es after 9/11.
