"Huey" HelicopterThe UH-1 "Huey" helicopter is a multifaceted aircraft, capable of command and control, resupply, casualty evacuation, liaison and troop transport. The "Huey" is the most widely used military helicopter. The venerable aircraft began arriving in Vietnam in 1963. It was so versatile that by the end of the conflict more than 5,000 of these aircraft were in Southeast Asia. The "Huey" became a superior asset during Vietnam when used for medical evacuations, and because of this, the mortality rate in Vietnam was much lower than previous wars.
