Bell 205

The Bell Huey was the first mass-produced helicopter powered by a jet turbine. With its distinctive whomp-whomp sound that could be heard miles away, the UH/AH-1 aircraft have totaled more than 27 million flight hours since Oct. 20, 1956 when the granddaddy of all H-1's, the XH-40, made its first flight. Since then, more than 16,000 H-1 helicopters have been produced by Bell and its licensees -- making it the most successful military aircraft in aviation history

The Model 205 ( military version known as UH-1H ), compared to the 204, has a longer fuselage and a more powerful engine that gives better overall performance.
