The UH-1 was originally developed as an Army utility helicopter. Its original designation, HU-1, evolved into its unofficial, but well-known nickname, the "Huey". UH-1s were used extensively in Vietnam for a wide variety of roles including gunship, troop carrier, medical evacuation, and search and rescue. UH-1s were flown by Army Reservists at Selfridge and Michigan Army Guardsmen at Grand Ledge from the 1970s through the 1990s.
