I was a huge Airwolf fan as a kid. So it has to be the Bell 222

The Hughes 500 before they re profiled the nose. I don't know what it was about it exactly but they were fantastic to fly in. I wonder what it would be like with the old nose and a Notar.

But as for traditional helocopters, I think I like the EC-135 best.
