A $43.9 million contract for the upkeep of US Coast Guard and Navy sensor equipment has been awarded to Teledyne FLIR Defense!

   

This helicopter is assigned to the 469th Squadron of the 39th Air Combat Group of the US Marine Corps based at Base Pendleton, California.

The special thing is that 11 years ago, Billy Helicopter delivered the first UH-1Y at this same base, but to 303 Squadron.

Born in the 1960s, the UH-1 is considered the most successful helicopter of the US and the most popular helicopter in the world with about 16,000 units serving in the агmed forces of nearly 80 countries and territories.
