The UH-1H was (and is) a great helicopter with few mechanical vices. Relatively easy to fly with plenty of power to do whatever was demanded of it, the "H Model" was dependable to a fault except for the rare "Chip Detect" warning light or loss of hydraulic pressure. I logged 1464.8 hours in the UH-1H at Det 6, 37 ARRS, McConnell AFB, KS from 05/14/1975 to 10/31/1979 flying missile site support and rescue missions along side some of the finest people in the Air Force. Best wishes to all.

I am looking for information concerning the whereabouts of UH-1H 72-21646 and any history after November 1976.

She was the first aircraft I Crewed and I was her first Crew Chief.

Shes' the Huey pictured below slinging out the crashed Huey from the rice paddy.

Hi All you UH-1 fans.
Thailand still fly the UH-1's and have just this week been asked to make 2 models of the UH-1H for 203 squadron
so if any of you guys would like a specific 'Huey' contact
me. Models are made from old teak wood recycled from the old house timbers. Have a look at one of my customers web site www.aero-teak.com to see the work we do.
Keep it safe and keep it flying.

The anti-collision light on the engine cowl of the Huey, is a rotating beacon, not a strobe light. A polished disc rotates around a stationary lamp, all of which is enclosed in a red platic cover (or lense).

Olá srs. este sem duvida é o maior helicoptero ja construido pelo homem , principalmente por sua história de nas guerras e por minha história tambem .
Trabalhei com esta aeronave , principamente com sua turbina T-52 L-13B lycoming , por varios anos e nos testes que realizava-mos cada um era diferente do outro , parecia que a turbina tinha alma propria .
No final eu sabia que dali aquela aeronave iria fazer alguma missão de ajudar a alguem.
Gostaria muito de poder sentir o prazer de voar com esta aeronave novamente ate mesmo trabalhar com ela denovo.

Grato amigos (Friends).

The National Guard Medical company based in West Bend still flies the uh-1v. They are great helicopters. It is amazing to see these 30+ year old workhorses flying around on a regular basis

I am a "former" UH1 instructor pilot both on active and reserve duty and as a Department of the Army Civilian flight instructor here at the US Army Aviation Warfighting Center. I flew the UH1C and M with the 176th AHC and the UH1H with Company A 229th AHB, 3rd Brigade 1st Cav in Vietnam. I have over 8000 instructor pilot hours in the UH1 series accumulated mostly here at Rucker over 25 years. My son Stephen graduated Army flight school in Oct 2006 and now flies the UH1V for the air ambulance/crash rescue here at Ft Rucker, called "Flatiron". If you have questions about the Huey or would just like to chat "Huey" feel free to email me at dahat001@aol.com
