In September of 1965, Bell delivered its improved Huey Model 204 -UH-1C. The 1C had many improvements over its predecessors including "door hinge" rotors with wider chord blades, improved elevators and increased fuel capacity. This gave the Huey better speed, maneuverability and a longer range. 749 UH-1C helicopters were delivered with capacity for pilot and 8-10 passengers. Hueys were armed with machine guns and air to surface rockets. This helicopter belonged to the 1st Air Cavalry Division.

Bell UH-1C 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.
