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.
