In the early days of the Vietnam War a wide variety of experimental camouflage schemes was employed by US Army aviation units. This particular B model Huey carries a drab pattern of black and light brown over olive drab as flown by the US Army 117th Aviation Company (later renamed to 117th Assault Helicopter Company). This pattern was not adopted for widespread use with other units.

Bell UH-1B 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.
