SASless,

Those are obviously OH-6 or H5ooC models, not T-tail and definiate four blades.

I guess we can discount that it is for mounting the outrigger wheels when they are first learning to fly ........

Re: 'ROTORHEADS AROUND THE WORLD' : Photo Gallery

Those are army helos, could the frames on the sides be for hanging stuff on, like guns maybe? Just a guess. They don't look strong enough for anything more powerful.

Does anyone know how much cash one would have to dish out to buy one of those birds?

I have heard that the price will be between $100K to $300K.

They can be inspected at Karup airport.

PM me for contact info if anyone is interested.

I´m guessing the thingies in the backdoor are used for SWAT team insertion!



I have just received info that the frames in the backdoor of the H-500 is used for "fast rope rappeling"

I think that is a B206 JetRanger. I donīt think you can get a Kiowa with high skids and Flitesteps? Or what??

it's a kiowa as it has flat screens and side windows and not a wrap around single screen. the one i flew had high skids and flight steps.

Cool Re: 'ROTORHEADS AROUND THE WORLD' : Photo Gallery

Imabell. It is a Kiowa. Best way to tell is te rear cross tube. On the 206 it is actually up in the airframe a little. Kiowa there is not cutout for it to go threw. Talk to you soon G
