THE 1960S PROVED TO BE A PIVOTAL DECADE FOR THE helicopter industry. As the Vietnam War escalated, the versatility of the helicopter was demonstrated time and time again.

That would have been a challenge this month, since our cover is made up of a selection of 49 covers that have appeared on Rotor & Wing since it went into business with the January 1967 issue. Why not 40 covers for 40 years? That was the initial plan. But in reviewing...
