Custom Bell®️ Huey®️ UH-1F - PLANETAGS SERIAL #: 66-1222
Missile Site Support At Its Best
Bell Helicopters was the winner of a 1963 United States Air Force competition for a support helicopter for use on its missile bases.
The resulting UH-1F had the shorter cabin of the "Bravo" Huey, but with a longer tail boom, rotor and transmission. The iconic aircraft of the Vietnam War with the distinctive "wop-wop" of the Huey's rotor blades stirs the memories of the generation that came of age during the turbulent 1960s.
OUR PLANE'S STORY
The UH-1F was introduced into the USAF inventory in February 1964. The USAF took delivery of 119 Huey with production ending in 1967. Many of the aircraft served in southeast Asia with the 20th Special Operations Squadron and some were converted to the armed UH-1P configuration.

Unique - each PlaneTag bears the color, thickness, and wear and tear from the portion of the fuselage from which it was cut and it is therefore rare to create two identical PlaneTags.

Versatile - comes with a durable metal ring, strong enough to attach to luggage or keys or display.
*Important Notice – Please Read Carefully
PlaneTags are made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal. Because PlaneTags are made from real fuselage, each PlaneTag bears the color, thickness, and wear and tear from the portion of the fuselage from which it was cut and it is therefore rare to create two identical PlaneTags. These variations and imperfections are not product flaws. They are part of the beauty of PlaneTags. As a result, you will not have an option to select the color of your PlaneTag. The images on this website are provided for reference only and should not be used as the sole basis for choosing a particular PlaneTag.
Caution: Not recommended for children under 8 years of age. This product contains chemical-based paint which may cause respiratory irritation if ingested or inhaled in large quantities. Keep out of mouth.
