I'd love a flight in a Huey some day. Here is a little bit of info on NOTAR technology.

Flew in a Huey once. Local air show 5 years ago $100 for a 15 min ride. As the motor was spoiling up I am thinking "this heavy bird isn't getting off the ground." Lifted off effortlessly.

There was a B52 there also, but that was $1500. Too expensive..

I haven't been to an airshow where they've had a Huey for rides. The Collings Foundation will usually bring around their B-17, B-24, B-25, and P-51 every year for rides. I'd like to hitch a ride on some of those.
