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.

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.
