Seawolf Huey To Take To The Skies

08 May 2008


A restored Seawolf UH-1B helicopter will fly from California to Washington, D.C for the Memorial Day ceremonies at The Wall.

The Huey was part of the Navy’s Helicopter Attack Light Squadron 3 (The Seawolves) between 1968 and 1972 and provided air support to U.S. riverine forces operating in the Mekong Delta.

Thanks to donations, Overseas Aircraft Support (OAS) and the Wings & Rotors Museum have fully restored the 44-year old aircraft.

Together with three other Vietnam era helicopters and 300,000-motorcycle riders, the Seawolf Huey will depart from California on May 14th and travel across the country to the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial in Washington, D.C for the Memorial Day weekend.
