Long Description:
Developed for MEDEVAC, instrument training and general utility, approximately 7,000 UH-1 aircraft saw service in Vietnam. Originally designated HU-1 (resulting in the "Huey" nickname), the designation was changed to UH-1, but the nickname persisted.

Craft is painted gloss black and windows are darkly tinted. The effect is that of a silhouette. An OH-6 Cayuse is immediately in front of it, giving the impression of accompanying the smaller craft on a mission.
