    In ancient times it was an OH-6. Military version of the Hughes 500.

    I actually edited my post, its a 530F with glass cockpit.

    OH-6s and even the MD500 now are relative dinosaurs, but damn are they sporty.

    The MD530 F/G are the closest lineage to the OH-6 and those are entirely different beasts.

    My buddy flies that 530 for TVA. We have a few 530’s at my company, they’re awesome to fly.

    The OH-6 was basically the same as a C model 500. When the D came out they had a C-20 engine instead of the C-18 and a 5 bladed head.
