National Training Center Aviation Company, April 1999
A number of the UH-1s were painted in an aggressor scheme with Soviet style side numbers, much like the fighters at Nellis. Here 73-21858 basks in the Californian sun:

As well as the colour scheme, some of the UH-1s had a nose job, making them look more like the Hinds they were supposed to represent. 74-22459 was one such machine. I have this down as a JUH-1H although I don't think the 'J' designation was due to the change in nose profile... Maybe she was a test machine of some sort in an earlier life?

73-21785/06 was another "HueyHind". If you squint really hard, you can see a Hind... honest...

71-20057 was a much more traditional "Chocolate Mouse":

At least 69-15325 had a splash of colour, even if it was only the red cross markings!

Looks like the medevac Hueys were in the midst of being replaced:

I've struggled with scanning a lot of my slides from this trip, but these ones have been pretty good. Think they were on Kodak film rather than Jessops which may have helped.
