This helicopter was donated to the museum by the 1107th Missouri Air National Guard in 1994, and is on loan to the museum by The United States Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command. All military equipment decommissioned from service and loaned to a non DOD museum, must be rendered unusable. The Guard removed all instruments in the pilot and gunners cockpit. The engine was also missing and all electronic equipment was removed including hydraulic flight controls and control panels. Despite all the missing components, it was determined to create a realistic operating helicopter flight simulator.
