Huey 113 rescued!
281st Veteran Ed Duke heard of a huey about to be scrapped out of public service in East Florida and the aircraft number seemed familiar. It was our Bandit 113, 66-17113, an early H model. Our Lance Ham's crew of friends rescued it. Another crew of veterans, including Ed and 113's crewchief Jay Hays, moved it to the H.E.A.R.T.S. veteran's museum in Huntsville, Texas. It's been painted, but still may need a few parts. The H.E.A.R.T.S museum is a good home for it while "Helping Every American Remember Through Service".
