Goodbye Huey

its Auf Widersehn pet finally as more H145M LUH SAR is replacing the legacy in the Bundeswehr / Heeresflieger.


If it was not for covid pandemic from last year I would gone back to Aero Friedrichshafen to see the special painted Heeresflieger UH-1D on its tour.

As it happens thankfully few years back at ILA 2018 as with previous ILA, managed to see the UH-1D SAR (my pics below)











Cheers

I was concerned that this was an obituary...

Thankfully not. That would be a big loss.

UH-1D? Does it still have an L-11 engine? Looks like the pitot tube is on the roof.

There is also a pitot tube. You can see them both here in mine...we have the -17 engine.



When you look at a Bell 205 or 212 the pitot tube is moved to the nose.

Here you can see the pitot tube on the nose and the wire cutters top & bottom on my Bell 205:

UH-1D

UH-1H for Germany (D was for Deutschland). 352 license built version in West Germany between 1967 and 1981 for use by the Federal Government. Power by the T53-L13 engine

That's a beautiful paint scheme. hopefully they'll put it in a museum just as it is. A couple of question if I may, what is that object fitted to the tip of the upper cable cutter and, what is the object fitted between the upper anti-collision light and the engine cowls?

Already in the helicopter museum in Bueckeburg:

Huey Museum

It's a GPS antenna on the upper cablecutter

Many happy memories flying it at Penzing. My favourite ride by far.

Dornier assembled and maintained the German ones. The German Navy refused to accept theirs and handed them over to Bundesgrenzschutz Federal Border Police, with Bundesmarine finally opting for Sea Kings.

Nice looking Huey. My point was the UH-1D has a nose mounted pitot tube, T-53 L-11 engine. UH-1H has a roof mounted pitot and a T53 L-13. The D's that were converted to H retained the nose mounted tube. Does your UH-1 have the BLR Fast Fin?

Yep, fast fin and strake, and the tilt seat on the left side:

The D’s pitot tube was atop the cockpit, not on the nose.
