| Hello gentlemen, I was running the Lone Star SAR program at NAS Corpus Christi from 95 to late 99. We did in fact have three two HH and one UH twin Hueys at that time dedicated as our SAR platform.
We never had all 3 ready for flight at the same time as one always turned up as a bitch bird for parts.
I have over 2,000 hours in those birds with only two unpland landings. I flew more hours doing JTF-6 ops than SAR stuff but that is a good thing I guess?
Anyway,I was wondering if any of you have any contacts in the Navy SAR community's; I would really like to get some old pictures and documents that covered some missions I was involved with. Thanks guys and girls.

| Are you sure about the maximum altitude? From Lemoore, the helo landed on the top of Mt. Whitney. I believe the max altitude is over 15K. You may want to check |

| the max speed on the hh-1n huey is wrong. its 135 knots. and a cruise of 128 knots. these choppers have as much get up and go a blackhawk . and i think most people or even chopper pilots would agree. |

| What does the HH stand for?, and it's not Heavy Helicopter |

| Actually, those are two UH-1N's, they use in Corpus :)
The U designates 'Utility'.
*Unless they have change birds since I was stationed there.
The 'n' 'november' designation makes this one stand out as a twin eng.
