Ordered into production in March 1960, the UH-1 was the first turbine powered helicopter to enter production for the United States military, and more than 16,000 have been produced worldwide.
The first combat operation of the UH-1 was in the service of the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War, approximately 7,000 UH-1 aircraft saw service in Vietnam. The UH-1 has long been a symbol of US involvement in Southeast Asia and Vietnam in particular, and as a result of that conflict, has become one of the world's most recognized helicopters.
