More popularly known as the Huey, the Bell UH-1 is a military helicopter that runs on a single, turbo shaft engine. Flying for the first time on October 20, 1956, the Huey was developed by Bell Helicopter to serve as a medical utility helicopter in 1952. The UH-1D, a newer version of the Bell UH-1, was made larger to accommodate six stretchers in its cabin. This had twice the capacity of earlier versions of UH-1 Iroquois helicopters. The doors were also made bigger and the originals single window was replaced with two windows. The UH-1D was the most produced version of the Huey utility helicopter.
