Army Aviation's Proud Past

Follow us on an exciting journey through Army Aviation's proud past. Beginning with those first hydrogen filled balloons used during the civil war, we'll look back to the acquisition of the first Wright Model B in 1909, the use of "Grasshoppers" as organic air observation for field artillery during World War II, and the Army's first helicopter, the XR-4. We'll explore the role of the H-13 and H-19 during the Korean conflict, the introduction of the UH-1 Iroquois and AH-1 Cobra in Vietnam, and the battle testing of the AH-64 Apache during Panama and Desert Storm. And finally, we'll look forward into the future of the development of the RAH-66 Comanche.
