UH-1F Iroquois US Air Force

History of this Model in this Organisation:

Originally designated as UH-48 missile sites support helicopter, the Huey UH-1F was the Bell 204 Air Force variant of the Army UH-1B/C but with a General Electric T58 engine rather than the Lycoming used on other models at the time. The resulting aircraft had the shorter cabin of the UH-1B, but with the longer tail boom, rotor and transmission of the UH-1D.

The UH-1F was introduced into the USAF inventory in February 1964 with production ending in 1967. Many of the aircraft served in Southeast Asia, and some were converted to the armed UH-1P for psychological warfare role . The last UH-1F was retired from the USAF in the early 1980s and replaced by the 205 variant HH-1H Huey

The basically similar TH-1F was for instrument and hoist training .
