• Civil/military utility helicopter • Twin-engine reliability
The most widely produced helicopter in
the Western world, the single-engine Bell ‘Huey’ won eternal fame in the Vietnam War. An extensive development programme produced the more powerful UH-1H, from which came the ‘November’ model with extended range and greater safety of twin engines. Its load carrying capacity was also increased and, like its predecessors, the UH-1N was bought by US and foreign armed forces.
