The aircraft weighs about 9,500 pounds and usually carries a crew of 3. The UH-1 is better known as “The Huey” and is one of the most recognized aircraft of the Vietnam Era. The aircraft had a wide variety of uses ranging from medical evacuation to troop transport to gunship. The UH-1H on display here went into service in September 1967. All four branches of the United States Military are still using the Huey.
