Photo of A UH-1Y being winched into a C-5 Galaxy.

A UH-1Y, the latest marine aircraft based on the workhorse Huey utility helicopter, is being winched into a C-5B to determine the ramps and positions to safely transport as many of these and the new AH-1Z Super Cobra (seen beside the C-5). C-5 Galaxy and crews came together at Travis Air Force Base, California, to determine how the new UH-1Y and AH-1Z helicopters best fit into the cargo bay of the C-5 Galaxy. The efforts of this day will determine load numbers and configurations of these helicopter inside the C-5. It is expected that these new helicopters will begin to be delivered to Iraq and Afghanistan by the end of 2009. The helicopters differ significantly from previous versions.with it's 4-blade composite rotors, T-700 engines, and a stronger transmission. These and many other upgrades improved power, maximum altitudes, reliability, maintainability and combat survivability of these helicopters.
