Greetings All -

A model I came across in the St. Louis Aviation Museum collection. No information readily available for it and a quick search provides no info on any McDonnell entry in the Army's LOH competition. Any ideas on a Model #?

Enjoy the Day! Mark

Greetings All -

Here's my find for the day over at the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum archives. These are copies of copies I scanned - I think I know who to talk with now to possibly access the originals and hopefully the detailed specifications part of the proposal.

Interestingly, the proposal is to a Navy requirement but it is for an Army LOH. Anyone know what's up with that?

Enjoy the Day! Mark

I would guess McDD submitted their existing "Army LOH" design to the naval requirement.

NOTE: this topic was split from the old "McDonnell rotorcraft" thread.
