[REQ] USAREUR UH-1H's at TeaMCo, Brussels

Post by Stephan Lodewijks »

In the late Eighties and early Nineties the TeaMCo company at Brussels did maintenance on a lot of US Army Europe hardware: Cobras, Kiowas and Iroquois'. Especially the Iroquois' were tricky, because for the 15xxx and 16xxx serial range you needed the Fiscal Year from the data block to actually know which airframe it was, because of double or triple 5-digit numbers. Military aviations books, magazines and other media never really published the complete list of USAREUR UH-1H's. I'm not even sure how 'steady' the airframes were assigned to Europe. There may very well have been regular swaps of helicopters back and forth between the CONUS and Europe. Anyway, here is a list of UH-1H's I still need the Fiscal Years of, plus also the ones that I had complete serials of, grouped together where having the same five digits. The dates I saw them at Brussels are also mentioned, in 'yyyymmdd' format.

Can anyone help me fill in the FY-gaps? Thanks in advance! Here we go:

Aha, the European AVCRAD ( Aviation Classification Repair Activity Depot) as the unit was called in Brussels. The United States Army Aviation Digest of Jul/Aug89 has an article about it (see page 21):

The @MAR September 2019 has a rundown of all USAREUR Hueys by unit as of the beginning of 1990.
Maybe that can help in your cross checking efforts?

Hi Arjan,
That is not in the public domain but requires a GBP20 annual subscription I'm afraid:
