History:

This Helicopter was a hard working warrior during the Vietnam War in 1968. Based in Korat, Thailand it flew with the 7th Aviation Platoon. The 46th Special Forces Company did not have its own aviation assets. Aviation support was provided by the 7th. 66-17111 is confirmed as one of eight UH-1H’s that did special operations missions for the 46th Special Forces and showed up in country with only 54 hours on the Airframe. It went on to fly over 2,000 hours in combat.

After its service in the U.S. Army it was transferred to the Singapore Air Force where it served until 2005, after which it was acquired by Northwest Helicopters LLC. It then received a complete inspection, reassembly, new paint and FAA certification to Airworthy status in Experimental Exhibition category.
