The CIA's 222 Prototype

The Bell 222 light commercial twin-turbine helicopter prototype was the first design to incorporate twin turbine, dual hydraulic and electrical systems, and sponsons housing a retractable landing gear.  The 222 received full certification from the Federal Aviation Administration on August 16th, 1979

January 22nd, 1984; an advanced and heavily modified prototype 222 stealth helicopter, under development by "The Company" aka the Central Intelligence Agency, was stolen during a planned live fire demonstration by the programs chief designer, and test pilot, Charles Henry Moffet.

Intel gathered after the disappearance indicate the prototype was possibly flown to Libya, unfortunately, neither the chief pilot, nor the one of a kind CIA stealth helicopter were ever seen again.  The entire Advanced Prototype CIA program was dissolved shortly afterward.
