Bell UH-1M “Huey”

The UH-1 was the first turbine-powered helicopter to enter production for the U.S. military. The Museum’s helicopter was delivered to the Army in 1967 as a UH-1C. It was later converted to a UH-1M gunship variant, assigned to the 134th Assault Helicopter Company and flew 1,315 missions in Vietnam between June 1969 and November 1971.  It was shot down twice and repaired in theater. It was donated to the Museum by the Vietnam Veterans of America Baltimore Chapter 451 in 2014.
