In 1978 I worked for the forest service in Idaho and saw the remains of the helicopter being trucked away after the pilot decided to simulate an engine failure and try fluttering it down. He walked away. The helicopter never flew again, I wouldn't be surprised if the pilot didn't either. I worked at Hughes Helicopters in Culver City, CA in 1981. At that time they had built the first seven Apaches. One other thing I saw was a Bell 4-seater on its pad on top of a good sized motor yacht in the San Juan Islands, WA around 1983. The boat was called the Lucky Logger.
