USAF 37th ARRS, Ellsworth AFB, SD, 1979

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Bell UH-1F Huey   9.75"   8"

The UH-1F was developed in reponse to a 1963 United States Air Force competition for a support helicopter for use on its missile bases. Using the General Electric T58 turboshaft as a powerplant, it had the shorter cabin of the UH-1B, but the longer tail boom, rotor and transmission of the UH-1D. The UH-1F was introduced into the USAF inventory on 20 February 1964. The USAF took delivery of 119 with production ending in 1967. Many of the aircraft served in southeast Asia with the 20th Special Operations Squadron and some were converted to the armed UH-1P configuration. The last UH-1F was retired from the USAF in the early 1980s when it was replaced by the UH-1N. many of these aircraft later served as forest fire fighting aircraft with various US state governments and agencies.

Bell UH-1F Huey

Designed to meet a US Army requirement for a medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) and general utility helicopter, the UH-1 Huey was first flown on October 20, 1956. Nicknamed "Huey" because of its original "HU-1" designation, this aircraft became famous during the Vietnam War, where 7,000 of them served in a variety of roles, from MEDEVAC and search and rescue to troop transport, air assault and ground attack. As a troop transporter, the Huey revolutionized warfare, giving the Army the ability to strategically position troops in various locations that were otherwise difficult to reach in the heavy jungle environment.
