Huey helicopter

The Bell UH-1 Iroquois helicopter, nicknamed the Huey, is an icon of U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War. The concept of airmobile warfare was executed by troops ferried into and evacuated from combat zones aboard the UH-1. Powered by a turboshaft engine and rotors, the UH-1 entered service with the U.S. Army in 1959, and more than 16,000 were built.
