The US DOD Media site has a LOT of Pictures. Make sure you uncheck the Moition & AV & Content blocks, otherwise it locks up. here's a link to the search, HTH Darren

I got this to pull up from the site

I found this website which has a power point presentation for the Davis company. Scroll thru the presentation & you will find pic of both a UH-60 & an AH-64 with main rotor blades folded:

http://www.davisaircraftproducts.com/as ... s_2011.pdf

I was assigned to the first AH-64 combat ready squadron at Ft. Hood, TX (7th Squadron, 17th Cav which later became 3rd Squadron, 6th Cav) back in 1986. We never folded the blades on our Apaches when ever we deployed (via USAF C-5)but removed them along with the tail rotor too. I have a book that has a very basic drawing of what 6 Apaches loaded into the cargo hold of a C-5 illustrating the main rotor blades being folded but the drawing does not show any details. I left the active Army in 1988, so I have no knowledge of what became the proceedures to deploy 64s via USAF C-5 cargo aircraft. I think loading preps for a C-17 would require removal of main & tail rotor blades prior to loading too. I have no knowledge of this as we never used any C-17s while I was at Ft. Hood before I left active duty.

Hope the link above helps,

They remove the whole blade and stow it under the acft as needed.
