Does anyone besides me have many Photos of the late Doug Hillman's Hornet helicopter? N8063D
it was built in 1979 and won an award at Oshkosh 79.

There are very few photos of it on line and even less of the interior and engine compartment or of the fuel tanks and battery mount area.

from my research I think only 2 ever where built and flown before Doug got killed by a drunk driver. from what I read, Rudy Enstrom had a hand in the design.
it used the same drive line as the 2 place Helicom Commuter, but the frame was beefed up and it had a better tail rotor gear box then the Commuter.
