    1st review

    Old workhorse. Can be converted into a fire fighting aircraft. The Details say it all.

    Originally 2.2 million. Probably under 1 million now days. **In the few sites I have found selling them, they mostly list for around $375K, but they are 1H's and not 1N's. They were produced from 1968-1978. Here is a good site with lots of info:

    Hueys are the best possible air craft for these jobs. It's battlefield proven, it's no wonder it's the single most oldest Helicopter series still in use in the military; I'd say nothing else in civilian hands measure up, but thats a personal opinion...

    This is the bird we've used for deep water drilling platform medivacs. Refueling once on the platform was the norm due to the flight distance being close to the max. Still an all around excellent bird for medivacs. A lot less cramped than most land based medical choppers and more space for medical supplies and equipment.

    I spent 4 yrs working with these in the navy, God I love the sound it makes, you can never mistake it for one of those foreign made things. Weight capacity is outrageous.

    We operate a Bell212 in South Africa. Can anyone tell me how operators in the US fit a Bambi bucket to the 212? Because the heli's cargo hook swivels right around, which is not a good thing for the Bambi. I know there is a mod consisting of centring springs available for the military UH-1, but apparently it is not approved for civilian aircraft.
