Commercial Jet has reported the return of the Bell UH-1H Iroquois “Huey” helicopter with Army serial number 65-9643 to its home on the static display at Veterans Park, Dothan, Alabama, the company said.
The paint restoration was performed in Commercial Jet´s aircraft paint hangar at its facility at the Dothan Regional Airport.
Designed and first manufactured by Bell Helicopter in the late 1950´s, this UH-1H was the fourth modification of the basic design UH-1A Iroquois series, from which Huey was derived.
