The Hughes 500D "Loach" cut its teeth deep in the jungles of Vietnam. Flying high-risk reconnaissance operations, this nimble helicopter soon became a legend among both helicopter pilots and the ground pounders it supported. Soon after, this icon hovered its way into the hearts of Americans in the 1980's television series Magnum PI, conducting reconnaissance for a Navy veteran turned Private Investigator, at no cost, of course.

Loved and warmly remembered by hundreds of thousands of fans, this expertly crafted piece of aviation memorabilia is a must-have.
