Bell UH-1B 'Huey' Helicopter Limited Edition Relic Display
A unique opportunity to own an authentic piece of this early Vietnam-era Bell UH-1B, paired with Ron Cole's original painting of this machine in action over Vietnam c. 1968.
The aft section of this Bell UH-1B was acquired by Ron Cole in 2020. This helicopter was manufactured in Fort Worth, Texas in 1964, and was operated by the U.S. Army in both Vietnam and Western Europe through the early 1970’s. It was acquired by the Ohio Air National Guard, and finally retired in the 1980s.
