Okeechobee City

HUEY HH-1H SN 70-2468


Happily — another Huey has a home

Like many of the smaller towns in the United States Okeechobee City (Florida) takes a keen interest honoring its citizens who have served in the military — with special care to recall those who perished while on duty. Okeechobee’s Veteran’s Park periodically gains an addition and the most recent was observed this month, a venerable Huey (Bell UH-1 Iroquois). We are uncertain of the model though it appears to be a Delta model at the earliest with is longer cabin — though it has a powerful rescue hoist on the pilot’s side.
