| The Pueblo Air Museum (http://www.pwam.org) has a UH-1M, serial number 65-9484. I am trying to track down the history of this particular machine.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

| There is a UH-1M at PEO AVN park on Redstone Arsenal, AL. This is the same location as the restored ACH47 'Guns-A-Go-Go" |

| Hi I,m a New Zealand based Australian Navy veteran who is also an avid wreck diver.
On a recent dive trip off the south coast of Vietnam, I had the opportunity to dive on several sunken UH-1 Huey\'s as well two Cessna Birddog FAC aircraft and a Huey Cobra gunship. All were in aprox. 50-70 feet and it was quite an effort to, first locate and then dive on these old RVN machines.
Although they are several kilometres from the track of the USS Blueridge and her taskforce; and they\'re in comparatively shallow water; I believe they were part of Operation Frequent Wind ( the evacuation of Saigon).
My dive buddies and I took several shots of these sunken gems with our cameras.Unfortunately this had offended the sensibilities of the local authorities; who promptly confiscated our film.
We are planning another dive at this site in late 2007/early 2008 using smaller more compact digital cameras ( memory sticks are easier to conceal than 35mm film )
Hopefully we\'ll have some pix to upload for anyone who\'s interested.
We\'ll keep you posted.
I\'m off to Papua New Guinea next month to dive on some WW2 Japanese wrecks. If I come across any aircraft down there I
will let you know.
I loved looking at your website and will visit regularly
All the best;
Mike and Steve
P.S. I put Alberta as state/province because this thing insisted on me putting something there even though we're not even in Nth America

| There is also a UH-1M on display & mounted on a pedestal at the entrance to Los Alamitos Army Airfield, in Southern California. The aircraft's serial number is 64-14117. The aircraft flew for years out of the same airfield while assigned to Troop D, 1/18th Cavalry, 40th Inf Div, CA-ARNG. I had the the privilege of flying 117 for years. It was dubbed the "Death Star" and the name is still painted on the nose.
