Boeing Vertol 301 XCH-62A

05/31/2006. Remarks by Jos Heyman: "The XCH-62A was to be a heavy lift helicopter. Procurement of 300 aircraft was envisaged. A single prototype was ordered on January 29, 1973, s/n 73-22012. The aircraft was 90% complete when the programme was cancelled on October 1, 1974. The project was briefly revived in 1984. By 2005 the airframe on display at the US Army Aviation Museum had deteriorated and was demolished."
