Del'd: 27 - 1970 to 1991

US Navy HH-1K Iroquois

The Huey HH-1K was the CSAR (Combat Search and Rescue) variant based on Marines UH-1E but with special Navy avionics

BuNos 157177 / 157203: HH-1K ( c/n 6301 / 6327 ) 27 airframes

In HA(L)-3 I flew 157200, 157202, 157203 from November, 1970 to April, 1971. The four HH-1Ks were used for SEAL operations. I have quite a bit of time in 157202. It was dark grey. Other than the one Huey Tug built with a T-53 engine, the HH-1K was the most powerful Huey in the world at the time. It had VERY special avionics. I never flew 157201, but I expect it was a Seawolf aircraft. Roger Ek, Seawolf 25
