UH-72A at YTC

The US Army's newest light utility helicopter has made it to the Yakima Training Center.  It's been there the last couple months, but being the new father of a toddler, it takes me longer to catch up on changes.  It is here to replace the base's aging UH-1s.  The UH-72A Lakota is produced here in the US by Eurocopter (EADS North America).

I saw this one fly over last week and wrongly assumed it to be a modified OH-58, but a little research and an article in Combat Aircraft led me to this site.

So, lets welcome the new addition to the inventory.
