The U.S. Army Aviation Museum is planning to restore the only remaining prototype Huey. The aircraft was called the XH-40, tail No. 54459. Museum officials describe the aircraft as the grandfather of the UH-1 series helicopters, and added that it represents the leap from reciprocating engines to the turbine technology that changed the world of rotary wing Aviation and the Army. The helicopter is currently missing a number of parts, including all instrumentation and console equipment.
People who have these components and would like to donate them to the museum or know where like items may be found can contact Robert Mitchell, curator, at 255-1060 or Steve Maxham, director, at 255-1078. Any other information in the form of photographs, tech manuals, etc. would be helpful, officials said.
