The GSA auction site – run by the US General Services Administration department – is currently listing four MD500E helicopters, all of which have operated for the US Department of Homeland Security. The four are

N5247S built 1985 MSN 0119E – sale ref 91QSCI14180501
N91620 built 1996 MSN 0529E – sale ref 91QSCI14181501
N7166M built 1985 MSN 0145E – sale ref 91QSCI14182501
N6508U built 1984 MSN 0084E – sale ref 91QSCI14183501

The helicopters are currently parked up at Brown field near San Diego for inspection, and photos indicate they are in storage minus main blades. The auction site provides no details such as component hours

This leaves three other 500Es, two of which are marked on the FAA register with status “Expired”, so it is fair to assume these are in storage too and likely to be disposed of in the future.

N9204U built 1996 MSN 0531E
