Huey Lands on Aft Flight Deck

A Vietnam era UH-IH Huey helicopter landed on Iowa’s refurbished aft flight deck. The landing took place on the last day the ship was open to the public before being towed to her permanent home in San Pedro, CA. This was the first helicopter landing on the ship since 1989. The helicopter is called the 309 and is owned / operated by EMU, Inc.
