Bell UH-1H Super Huey- Calif Dept of Forestry
@San Carlos Airport, CA
Military surplus Hueys are a popular choice for aerial firefighting and Calif Dept of Forestry (now CAL FIRE) was a regular exhibitor at the Hiller Aviation Museum’s Vertical Challenge helicopter airshows. Performing here during the 2006 show is an ex-Army (originally delivered 1969) UH-1H “Copter 106” that was acquired by the CAL FIRE in 1981, one of eleven in the fleet. This one was actually a EH-1H modified as a communications jamming aircraft with the US Army. There are nine Helitack bases located statewide. Panasonic DMC-FZ30 @ 15mm, processed with Aperture.
