Bell's Model 206 was one of the top three machines in the U.S. Army's LOH (Light Observation Helicopter) competition in 1960. The Allison T63-A-5 turbo shaft engine in the 206 yielded a cruising speed 110 knots with a 400 pound payload. Afterward, the LOH program was on hold, but was opened again in 1967, and Bell's five seat 206A Jet Ranger won that competition.
