What is this helicopter?


Recommended Posts

It's the Bell YAH-63. It was in competition with the Hughes YAH-64. The Apache.

The bird to the right is a AH-56 Cheyenne.

That's right. It's the Bell YAH-63. I found out about 30 minutes after posting this but thought I might wait to post the answer. Anyone want to guess where the picture was taken?

 

Here's another one:

Here's another one:

The outside Aviation Museum storage yards at Fort Rucker?

 

The second pic is the Rotor System Research Aircraft built by Sikorsky. If you look around, or if you get access to the storage hangars, you'll find the Sikorsky's ABC helicopter, Lockheed's XH-51A and its compound sibling, Bell 207 Sioux Scout, Cessna CH-1 and a myriad of other helicopters from Army Aviation history. Lucky that they got the Bell X-3 rescued, or it might look even worse than these aircraft.
