EAA’s Huey, Vietnam Crew Reunited

EAA huey vietnam crew reunion 

On Wednesday, members of the 121st AVN Association were at the EAA Aviation Museum as part of its annual reunion. This national veterans group consists of former members of the 121st Assault Helicopter Company, the 93rd Transportation Company, the 121st Aviation Company, the 80th Transportation Detachment, and other attached and supporting units from the Vietnam War.

At the museum, the approximately 40 veterans reunited with the Huey helicopter on display in the museum’s Eagle Hangar, an aircraft that was flown by the group during the Huey’s three tours in Vietnam. The group also had its Wednesday dinner in the Eagle Hangar near the aircraft.

The connection began last year when EAA’s Chris Henry spoke about the Huey display at the association’s reunion in Georgia. The group then voted to come to Oshkosh in 2023 to reunite with the aircraft, which many of the veterans had not seen since the Vietnam War.

Along with plenty of photos taken and stories shared, the group also provided information and artifacts that help raise the authenticity of the Huey display. It was our honor to host this group and bring it together with its Huey, dubbed The Good Widow Mrs. Jones.
