Additional Description

The "Huey" is a military helicopter powered by a single turboshaft engine, with a two-bladed main rotor and tail rotor. The UH-1 was the first turbine-powered helicopter to enter production for the United States military, and more than 16,000 have been produced worldwide. The US Army phased out the UH-1 with the introduction of the UH-60 Black Hawk. UH-1Hs have been used by the United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) in counter-narcotics raids in the ongoing conflict in Afghanistan.
