Antonucci, prepared and shipped the special- ly designed trailer to Poland. Upon arriving at the PZL Mielec plant Phil supervised the installation of the protective packaging and set about loading the aircraft and preparing for the trip to the port. Carefully orchestrating the loading of the UH-60 aboard ship, Phil returned when he was satisfied


the load was


fully secured for sea travel. Many days later, upon arriving at


it’s interim destination in


Georgia, the UH-60 was met by driver Derek Smith, who took custody of the ship- ment and delivered back to Sikorsky in West Palm Beach. For over fifteen years H.W. Farren has


been called when Sikorsky needed to make special plans to move it’s most important cargo and aircraft. Whether the job required special trailers which would insure the load cleared every bridge and obstacle along the route, or being trusted to haul one of a kind, X-2 development aircraft, H.W. Farren has always gotten the job done right, and more importantly safely.
