Vietnam War chopper for War Memorial

One of the first Australian Iroquois helicopters to see action in the Vietnam War will be lifted by crane into its new home at the Australian War Memorial on Monday. The Bell UH-1B Iroquois A2-1019 will be the centrepiece of the new Vietnam gallery, which will include multimedia experiences of a helicopter landing and a medical evacuation. The helicopter arrived in Vietnam in May 1966 and carried out 489 missions over the next two years, crewed by 9 Squadron RAAF.
