Piasecki Helicopter Morton Pennsylvania Matchbook Sticker (MB347)
This helicopter has the sweetest back story. The man who designed this helicopter was also the one who made history by testing and flying the second helicopter in the US. But since he was an inexperienced pilot, Piasecki actually tied the plane to the earth with a clothesline. (OK, so you’re brilliant enough to design and to fly a helicopter, but his wife ought to have told him that the clothesline would break, which it did…) This guy, though, wow – so he wants to sell his machine to the US military so he tows, yep, he TOWS the thing from Pennsylvania to Washington DC, stopping every 10-15 minutes to cool down the wheels since they had no bearings in them! Then he successfully demonstrates his invention and the government dudes, who of course wind up buying massive numbers of these, actually ask him to show them his flying license. Piasecki did not actually have a flying license. Lucky for him, those generous folks watching his demo decided to grant him one. Isn’t that a wonderful story!?

Images used to make our stickers are scanned at 9600dpi resolution, reduced to 960dpi for production.
