Photographer's Remark

This historic Huey saw action with 9 Squadron RAAF at the battle of Long Tan during the war in Vietnam. Allocated the USAF serial 63-13588, but delivered new to the RAAF on 12 Dec 1964 (incidentally, just a couple of weeks before I was born). Based at Vung Tau from mid-1966. Returned to Australia in April 1968 and used in the SAR role with 5 Squadron until retired in June 1984. Allocated to the School of Radio at RAAF Laverton until 1993, then transferred to the RAAF Museum and restored 2000-02.
