The third of three SO1221s leased by the US Army for evaluation in the observation role. Delivered as 57-6106 May 12, 1958, the helicopter was quickly side lined after extensive damage occurred during an accident on December 31, 1958. It was next noted in 1971 at the Department of Aeronautics, San Jose State College, in California. The aircraft is on loan to the American Helicopter Museum by American Eurocopter (now Airbus Helicopters, Inc).

The H-5 was the RCAF's first helicopter. The first three were delivered in 1947, with four more following, two in 1948 and two in 1949. Bought for Search and Rescue, the type was also used to train a helicopter force from the ground up. The S-51s (as they were better known by the crews) were in service until the 1960s when parts were getting scarce and more modern helicopters had joined the RCAF. 9603 was sold to the Alberta Institute of Technology in 1964 as a training aid, later going to the American Helicopter Museum & Education Center where it remains on display.

On 3rd Jan. 1970, whilst on operations over Vietnam's Tay Ninh province, this Cobra was hit by a .51 calibre bullet in the cockpit. Unfortunately the shell severed an artery in the pilot's leg and he (AC Gene Olsen) bled out before the co-pilot/gunner could reach a medevac helipad. This poignant exhibit is now on display at the American Helicopter Museum.

This was an experimental, medium-lift, tandem rotor, cargo helicopter developed privately by Boeing to demonstrate advanced helicopter technology. It was intended as a technology demonstrator with no plans to put the type into production. Many of it's design features were carried onto other programs, including the RAH-66 Comanche and V-22 Osprey. This is the sole prototype and is now on display at the American Helicopter Museum.
