Nicely done, Hans

Now why is that so familiar? Cool I can't quite discern if the tail boom stripe is blue or white. If blue, it's a B Troop "Banshee" ship out of Camp Eagle...if white, it's a C Troop "Condor" out of Phu Bai (unless it's before the move from Quang Tri, where both had been until sometime in '70).

What model and sim is this?

It's a Bell UH-1 from Nemeth Design. a white tail-boom stripe and they gave it as 17 cav/101 AB.......
To me it's the 101st AB that got my attention because of their gallant role in the liberation of this part of Holland - 17 sept 1944 - operation Market Garden.So: to all members 0f 101st AB -

...and I got that backwards, if white, it's a Banshee....A, B and C Troops had red, white and blue bands. Sqdn. HQ flight platoon had black.

Yeah, those 101st guys are all princes, ain't they? I like 'em myself. Wink
