Maintenance work goes forward on Sikorsky S-62 turbocopter in foreground, which makes short-haul flights for the San Francisco & Oakland Helicopter Airlines. In the background is one of the long-haul DC-8 jets flown by Pan American. The helicopter airline leases a portion of the hangar from Pan American for use as general office, hangar and maintenance space.
