  • Man, I always loved the look of that machine, it just ages really well IMO.
  • Military OH-58 Kiowa?
  • The A/C model
  • I loved flying that thing in BWS, some of the most fun I've ever had in an aircraft.
  • Nice, i worked on the OH-58D. Looks like you are trouble shooting hydraulic or flight controls. FUN FUN!!!
  • Basically just taking off the cyclic servo nearest me and doing a quick inspection. Then re-install and leak check.
  • awesome! i dropped one of those small bearing, that secure it to the mounting bracket, down what we called "the broom closet", where the flight controls go all the way down, luckily its magnetic and it fell close enough i didnt have to take anything apart. So yea good luck not doing what i did.
  • Oh yes, the mixing pot. I make sure I have a good grip on anything when in close proximity.
  • Today I actually had to pull the control rods on it then re rig the whole thing.
