Gordy, does that machine have the tail rotor on the left, rotating down at the front? I thought the flip-flop tail rotor was part of the fast fin/strake modification, so the blade is on the right side, rotating up at the front?

Yes, tail rotor is on the left. The ell 205 is on the right. The fast fin can be fitted to both aircraft.

205 on the right....Huey on the left:

Thats right for the german Hueys. They were built as UH-1H but called UH-1D. Do not mix with the US UH-1D, they were different.

I don't know. They told us when I started on the UH-1D in Germany after initial course in Ft. Rucker where I flew UH-1H with same engines

Excellent pictures! Great up-close image of the hoist, cabin, and rescue gear.

One type of Huey maybe...But the twin Huey lives on.

Three XH-40 prototypes were built, followed by six YH-40 service test aircraft. The designation of the XH-40 was soon changed to XHU-1.

This helicopter was the prototype of what would be known worldwide as the Huey. The helicopter was designated by the U.S. Army as HU-1, but a service-wide reorganization of aircraft designations resulted in that being changed to UH-1. Produced for both civil and military customers, it evolved to the Model 205 (UH-1DUH-1H), the twin-engine Model 212 (UH-1N), the heavy-lift Model 214, and is still in production 62 years later as the twin-engine, four-bladed, glass-cockpit Model 412EPI and the UH-1Y.
