Favorite helicopter?

Thread starter #1
I'm an aviation photographer. Recently, I was doing a shoot for an article about a heavy lift helicopter company. We were wrapping up and I was listening to the fifteen or so pilots talking about their favorite birds. Their choices were rather odd in my opinion. So I was curious what your favorite helicopter is and why.

Mine is the MD-600N. Its mix of high altitude and lifting performance is awesome... plus... It's just plain sexy!
