We need help finding the history of Bell Helicopter UH-1B 61-701 that was delivered to the US ARMY in Jan 1962. Being built in 1961 she was originally desinated as a HU-1B and in 1962 all Hueys were redesinated as UH-1's.
We know she went through FMS (Foreign Military Sales)to Germany in 1962 and according to a website www.flugzeugforum.com (thread/topic UH-1D page 4)she was the 1st Huey that Germany would receive for their Army/Air Force. Later they received many D-Models.
What we need to find is her History from 1962 thru 1972 while she was supposedly in Germany.
Her logbook history begins in 1972 at Texas receiving a complete maintenance overhaul with 2300 airframe hours.
So we need to know her history from 1962-1972?
We will be Restoring this Huey back to flight and this history is vital!
