HISTORY OF THE
The Bell UH-1
is perhaps the best-known helicopter in the world. Made famous
by its use in Vietnam, versions of the “Huey” remain in both
military and civil service today. Designated HU-1 by the Army
and H-40 by the Air Force the first Hueys flew in 1958. In 1962,
the designations were changed to UH-1. By the mid-1960s Hueys
could be found in every branch of the U.S. military and were
entering the civil and foreign military markets. The early
models of Hueys were found to be underpowered at high altitudes
or in hot conditions. This resulted in the development of the
larger and higher powered UH-1D in 1961. This model continued to
suffer from limited power issues that often prevented them from
hovering in the hot conditions that prevailed in Vietnam. An
even more powerful engine was installed resulting in the
UH-1H. Many D models were eventually upgraded to H
standards. Over 5,000 D and H models were built and many remain
