The following images were taken with a phone by a member of the Florida National Guard, who got to sit in the Comanche around the end of September 2011.

Here is a piece of text to go with the above pictures:

"I am a 1LT in the Florida National Guard, 1-111th AVN BN Makos. I am currently in flight school, in primary, and will be going UH-60M. One of the nice things they do here at Ft. Rucker is open up the back storage hangars during the family day, and let everyone see the experimental and other helicopter that are either being restored or are just not shown for one reason or another.

About the Comanche, from my understanding it used to be in the main museum however it was eventually deemed "too controversial" to display and was pulled and put in storage. I don't have any other information or details on that. So for my impressions, the first one was that it was big. A lot bigger than I expected. I was thinking somewhere between Kiowa and Apache, but it looks bigger than both. Second impression was how much I loved its design. It was just fantastic to look at.

The cockpit was very functional in a 21st century way. The MFDs really dominated the view. It was very strange sitting in a helicopter with the cyclic on the right side, not in the middle. And I know it would take a while to get used to twisting the stick as well."
