58-1005 I was happy to spot the Blue & White check markings on the nose, they are representing the colours of my home state, Bavaria in Germany where once 'Tired Dude' was based. During its active duty, the Mojave was the largest and fastest helicopter in the western world. Retractable landing gear and clamshell doors in the nose were among its features not usually found in helicopters. An amazing piece of aviation history stored in the Pima Air + Space Museum.
