A Huey restored to flying condition by Team Huey
Seen here about to depart RIAT at RAF Fairford in July 2012. I’ve seen 509 a number of times on the ground and occasionally heard it’s distinctive sound, but never actually seen it in motion until RIAT.
509 was manufactured in 1972 and was assigned to 129 Assault Helicopter Company Vietnam also in 1972

My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.

    Nicely done!

  • Thanks, they announced over the PA system that it would be departing, so I hung around with quite a few others to see and hear the Huey and Loach depart. A pity the sun was on the worong side at that time of the day.

    Nicely taken. The good old Huey. Wish I had bought one after the Vietnam War they were going so cheap. – Ted

  • This one is based in Blackpool, along with a Cobra and Loach, I wonder what will be next in their collection – maybe a Kiowa?
