What upgrade of the 407 is this? I'm hoping its an artist's impression for a valid proposal.


Anthony, you're in luck. This is a proposal by Northrop Grumman to modify the 407 with the control system of the MQ-8B Fire Scout.




Hi,

And this is the picture of the prototype during its maiden flight at Yuma. Note it is the same airframe that was used as ARH demonstrator, they even did not change the registration

The 407 can't be "phased out", it's an all-new model!!! You must be refering to the Models 206 Jet Ranger or 406 Aeroscout/Kiowa Warrior.

A beautiful illustration of the Bell Model 61 when it was first revealed to the general public (from Interavia, 1951).

No way! The Chinook was a Vertol (Boeing) design, while the HSL was a Bell.

Certainly NOT so! Just try and find photos of the Model 211 and you'll see what I mean. Now if you DO have pics of it I'd be more than interested... I've only got one myself, see below.


 This should drastically improve your collection of Huey Tug images.  All are from USAAM archives.

 Stéphane,

  My pleasure.  Always nice to see someone so excited by new Huey photos.  That's why I spend so much time collecting them, after all, to share with folks like you guys.  

   Regarding another post, in 2009 I visited White Sands Missile Range to photograph their Mike model Hueys, but one of the Hokum-X's was sitting next to the QUH-1M so I had to photograph it as well.  

   Ray

 

Hokum-x with rotors intermeshed with a QUH-1M.  She used the later Kaman blades even though she was converted from a AH-1S (Mod).

Nose modifications up close:

Some of the funky fuselage mods.  The guys who built this chimera could give a clinic on how to make a beautiful helo ugly!

When you see these white antennas on top of a Huey or Cobra it's a sure bet they were drones.

These latest contributions have made my day, especially the Bell/Bristol Aerospace "Hokum-X" photos. Thanks for posting!!

By the way, with your permission, I would really like to use your pictures at the main site, with credit to you, of course.

 Um... no there wasn't. no


 

I think this was a confusion with the MBB designation Me P 2040, a V/STOL rotorjet project.

 Travis,

  Of course you can repost anything I put up here.  Just give credit to the USAAM if it's from the archives.

  It seems that this site has a lot of VTOL stuff in it so I thought  These from the USAAM might be a good addition.  I have plenty of XV-15 pics if anyone is interested.

   Ray

  Edit: I see I probably should have put this in the "Major Manufacturers" forum.  You are welcome to move it, Travis, if you'd like.

WOW!!!!!!!!!

I'm going to faint. biggrin

Seriously, I can't thank you enough! And by the way, you can find more on the Bell BAT in the LHX program topic, in the Military Programs section. It was a rejected proposal due to it's weight class.

Some of these pamphlet pics I've seen before, but some are definitely new to me... Thanks a lot!

However, I don't think the term "JVX" applies to all of them. The Navy one, for instance, is one of the D-324 "Type A" configurations for the Navy.

 I just call them all "Tiltrotor" proposals.  I'm not quite as into designations for unbuilt aircraft as some around here (not that there's anything wrong with that).  Here are a couple more pamphlets that may be of interest.

I got a new one for you.  The Bell 525 Relentless.  Just announced at Heli-Exo 2012.  Bell's first 5 bladed helo.  This super medium trnsport helo will be Bell's newest entry into the petroleum helicopter transport business.  I hope she proves to be a worthy successor to the Huey line.

Funny how you changed your comment to UH-60, even though you said yes to the Models 206 and 406 suggested by Stephane. smile
