is the page for
Helicopters. I don't take a lot of pictures of helicopters, but here
are a few that I found interesting.
This is the Bell UH-1B Huey (N832M). It belongs to the Wings and Rotors
Museum in French Valley, California. It served with the US Army from
1963 to 1984. For more info on this helicopter, visit the Wings
and Rotors Museum website.
Vertol H-21 Shawnee (N64606). This helicopter is also referred to as
the "Flying Banana". Vertol built this Piasecki designed helicopter in
1957. It is registered to the Classic Rotors Museum in Ramona,
Robinson R22 Beta (N169CW). The R22 Beta is one of the most popular and
safest light helicopters around. Here is one flying over the crowd
during the 2005 Camarillo Air Show.
The Ventura County Fire Department
operates this 1969 Bell 205A-1 (N205VC).
This helicopter is leased and
is being operated by the US Forest Service. It is a 2000
Bell 407 (N911FS).
