Perhaps the most famous helicopter in the world is the Bell UH-1 Iroquois, most commonly referred to
as the "Huey." First flew in 1956 the Huey served in front-line service in the U.S. military and will
continue to do so for many years to come. It earned its fame during the Vietnam War first as a troop
transport and medevac helicopter and later as an armed assault helicopter used to protect troop
transports. It is a particularly noisy helicopter because, when in forward flight, the tip of the advancing
rotor blade breaks the speed of sound, creating a small sonic boom. The Huey has been enormously
successful because it achieves an ideal mix of cabin room, speed, lifting capability and proves to be
rugged and reliable.
