Hurlburt Bids Adieu to Huey

The final flight of a UH-1N Huey assigned to the 6th Special Operations Squadron occurred last month along the coast of the Florida panhandle and southern Alabama, announced officials at Hurlburt Field, Fla. Col. Jim Slife, commander of the 1st Special Operations Wing, the squadron’s parent organization, piloted the Huey during the Sept. 19 flight, accompanied by members of the squadron, according to an Oct. 1 Hurlburt release. Hueys were long a fixture of the squadron, which conducts combat aviation advising for Air Force Special Operations Command. The squadron is relocating to nearby Duke Field where it will solely operate the C-145A platform.
