UH-1 or Utility Helicopter (“Huey”) After seeing these in so many films / TV shows, seeing and hearing one for real gave me goose bumps.This UH-1N was flown by the US Marines at MCAS Miramar during the airshow weekend 2009

Great Helio the Huey. Very distinctive sound. Well captured shot. – Ted
Thanks. It was that distinctive sound that drew me down to the end of the bleachers whilst things of lesser interest to me were displaying near crowd center. This is what was waiting.There is a restored Huey flying in the UK and based at Blackpool if I recall. I’ve seen it on the ground but never arriving or departing. I thought I heard it one summer evening, seemed to be around for a good while. Much to my disappointment, I discovered a couple of days later that it was the Huey and it had in fact landed on a cricket pitch that’s less than two miles away from here.
