Dear Reader, I would like to ask your help in finding more information about the following  :

HUK CommandHeli KTech Nov2003 GeoffRussell

Photo taken by Mr. Geoff  Russell during November 2003 at the K-Tech yard, Tucson, AZ.  
I would like to know the former BuNo. of this HOK or the FAA Registration.
Who can tell me how long this airframe is present here ?
Mr. Mike Bursell informed me that the hulk was present here on 17 Apr 2001

 

The following photo was taken by Mr. Sid Nanson on 8 October 2009 :

581837 N612 129801 Pima 8Oct09 SidNanson

The "Command Helicopters" HOK or HUK airframe is still present together with the tailbooms
of HOK 129801 (upside-down on the left) , an unknown one and the tailboom of H-43A 58-1837,
registered as N612 (can anyone bring more light on the owner of N612 ?)
