    US Air Force HH-1H Iroquois


    The USAF Bell 205 version was an UH-1H equipped for base rescue duties. These were different than the Army models with the tail rotor on the opposite side, equipped with a rotor brake, and a hydraulic actuated electrically assisted permanently mounted hoist.

    They were delivered between 1970 and 1973

    BuNos 70-2457/2486 - c/n 17101/17130




    I flew UH-1H with 514 TEST SQ at Hill AFB, UT. We pickup the H-1H and the range support mission after Det 4, 40 ARRS Hill AFB UT closed. Tails no. 70-2460 70-2470 70-2484 70-2485. The parachute into rotor system was on the ground not in flight. The unit flew (2) HH-53H and in 1987 the (4) UH-1H switched to NCH-53A and H1 then H1 only. I left the unit in 1994. The unit closed after that
    The photo above is of HH-1H 70-2486 assigned to the 301st ARRS at Homestead AFB, Fl.
    3 of the HH-1H helicopters continue to conduct SAR, MEDEVAC, Firefighting missions and fill the basic utility roll the is unparalleled by any other helicopter in the service of the Las Vegas, Metro police department (2) and the Washoe County Sherriff department (Reno-1)
