The Australian aircraft are 206B-1's. They differ from the OH-58A which has a smaller diameter rotor, different gear box and rotor spins at a different RPM. The first 12 Australian aircraft were built in the US, I and another Navy pilot took delivery of the first Australian built airframe, number 13. I'd assume our aircraft components are identical to one of the civil models (206B?), unlike the 58A. Loved the cockpit instrumentation, which a civil pilot could but drool over.

Arriving home on the delivery flight.
