photoblog image Bell Huey

Bell Huey

This Saturday saw the start of the Blackpool Airshow, it rained of course. I didn't make it to the promenade to see the actual show but managed to get some photographs from Blackpool Airport where the aircraft staged out from.

At this moment in time Bell Huey UH1H 72-21509 is the only flying example of this helicopter in the UK. It has been restored back to Vietnam combat livery as it would have appeared with the 129 Assault Helicopter Company and is seen here leaving Blackpool Airport.

Great capture, Les. I love helicopters, and the history this one represents.
Les Auld: Thanks Kay, this was the first time I had seen a Huey, it sounded great as well, a very distinctive noise.

For a moment there I thought this is an attack by aliens at the Shugborough Hall mock battles smile

Difficult capture to do - these things that don't keep still in the air.
Les Auld: Thanks Louis, the fact that it was raining did not help, giving it a soft focus effect.
