About this title

Synopsis:

While greatly eclipsed in the annals of military aviation by the Huey and Cobra helicopters with which it served in the Vietnam War, the OH-6A earned a reputation of strength and reliability unmatched by its contemporaries. The first modern turbine-powered light observation helicopter, the OH-6A served as the U. S. Army's main scout for search and rescue missions in combat zones.

From the Back Cover:

While greatly eclipsed in the annals of military aviation by the Huey and Huey Cobra combat helicopters with which it served in the Vietnam War, the McDonnell Douglas OH-6A earned a reputation of strength and reliability unmatched by its contemporaries. The first of the modern light observation helicopters, the OH-6A was rugged and dependable enough to serve as the Army's airborne ambulance and main scout for the Huey's search and destroy missions in combat zones. Now entering its fourth decade of service, the OH-6A and its modern-day progeny continue to set high standards of performance. In Aero Series Volume 38, The McDonnell Douglas OH-6A Helicopter, Donald J. Porter brings you the inside story behind this legendary machine.Porter-who served as a field service engineer for the OH-6A during the 1960s and has been closely involved with the support and development of rotorcraft for many years-charts the helicopter's evolution from birth to present-day military and commercial deployments. You'll find detailed design specifications and performance characteristics of the OH-6A, an in-depth look at the large-scale problems that arose during its production, an examination of its remarkable survivability during service in Vietnam, and much more. Plus, Porter provides an overview of the current OH-6A Model 500 and describes how Hughes/McDonnell Douglas modernization plans promise to make it the staple of military and commercial rotary flight well into the 21st century.
