The Bell UH-1 Iroquois (commonly known as the “Huey”) was a multipurpose utility helicopter famous for its use during the Vietnam War. Bell developed the powerful helicopter in the 1950s and produced more than 16,000 of them between 1955 and 1976 — more than 7,000 of which served in Vietnam. The aircraft were used primarily to transport troops and for medical evacuations, cargo transport and aerial attack.
The UH-1H model was produced more than any other Huey, with the U.S. Army alone receiving nearly 4,850 aircraft. Many Hueys are still in use today, in both military and civilian capacities. Hueys have been used in firefighting missions, humanitarian aid efforts, research operations, and search and rescue duties.
