That R-4 weighs an even 2000# assembled, and without rotors engine and misc hardware it still kills approx 1400-1500# knocked down, quite a bit of weight to handle that way by hand. The 1st Air Commandos made good use of that helicopter.

One of our Jeep mechanics, David McQuarrie, at our business back in the 50's told of transporting CCKW loads of German POW's, and some would get rowdy and rock the trucks while enroute to the prison camps.

That is a prewar trailer, I'll bet it gets interesting should the trailer come loose from the CCKW and the breakaway switch activates the brakes.
