"The Huey is as much an icon of
Vietnam as the Fokker is of the First World War. Rotary-wing
warbirds have their own following - and their own problems, and
they are just now beginning to be noticed. Right now, almost all of
the Hueys in civilian hands are either stuffed and mounted in
museum settings... or being flogged and spurred to new heights
of productivity in those jobs where a civil type certificate is not
a necessity: logging and public service."

"warbirds" seen at today's airshows and flight displays.
