Bell UH-1 Iroquois-The Huey
An image from this past weekend, it is a Bell UH-1, commonly called a Huey. This particular one is called a “slick” as it doesn’t carry any weapons. Others were “gunships” which carried machine guns and some rockets. During Vietnam slicks were used to go into hot LZ’s to pick up the wounded and to deliver supplies their only defense was a door gunner. Brave men for sure who saved thousands of lives.
Normally I do my black and white conversions in Nik EFX, this time I just used Lightroom.
