Photos directly below were taken  at the USAFM in June 2001. This particular aircraft was one of 26 YH birds ordered by the Air Force for service testing. After that they were built as H-5A s. The engine is a P&W  R-985 with 450 HP. This particular bird was last used at Eglin AFB in Florida. The first models were know as YR-5A, but when the Air Force separated from the Army they became YH-5A.

If you feel there is a need for descriptions for this walk around, then feel free to type them up and quote the photo numbers above and forward the descriptions to Steve Bamford, so they can be put up into this walkaround.  We could really use our viewers help with this.  An expert on this aircraft could write much better descriptions than we could.
