Additional Information

The Utility Tactical Transport Aircraft System (UTTAS) competition was an effort by the U.S. Department of Defense to replace the aging Bell UH-1 Huey helicopter. Three companies submitted proposals and two, Boeing and Sikorsky, were given the go ahead to develop prototypes. The Boeing Vertol YUH-61 depicted on the button ultimately lost out to Sikorsky's UH-60A. Two of the three Boeing aircraft produced currently reside at the US Army Aviation Museum in Ft Rucker, Alabama.
