Photos from Bill Gius

Bill Gius, EAA Warbirds Co-Chairman, sent some of his photos of Seawolf 324 taken during the AirVenture show in Oshkosh, WI.  We parked the Huey on his lawn for a BBQ dinner party one evening.  Some great photos taken late in the afternoon, and at sunset.

Seawolf 324 back home.

Here is a photo of Seawolf 324, a UH-1B, back in the hangar at Show Low airport (KSOW) with all the other UH-1H Restricted Category "Super Huey" fleet.  Guns and rocket pods were removed and packed inside for the flight back from Oshkosh.
