BELL UH1 IROQUOIS (HUEY)
The HUEY helicopter has had thousands produced all over the world. It is still being used in over 40 countries.
This warbird started life as a medical helicopter to transport injured troops in Vietnam. It was quickly realized that the aircraft had potential for many other types of support, such as; troop, material and supplies movement, recon & air support and gunship, being fitted with multiple weapons.
The aircraft is retired from our military and replaced by the Blackhawk but its legacy lives on. The sound of a HUEY is easily recognized by those that served our country. Countless lives were saved because of this warbird and the people that flew them.
