Military Machines of American Freedom

This week we’re in Tallahassee with a very special guest who is restoring a Vietnam Icon, The Huey.

Did you know, the Bell UH-1 Iroquois (nicknamed “Huey”) is a utility military helicopter powered by a single turboshaft engine, with two-blade main and tail rotors. The first member of the prolific Huey family, it was developed by Bell Helicopter to meet a United States Army’s 1952 requirement for a medical evacuation and utility helicopter, and first flew in 1956. The UH-1 was the first turbine-powered helicopter to enter production in 1960 for the United States military, and more than 16,000 have been built since.

American Armoured Foundation Tank Museum: Part 1

This week Bob is on the move to Danville, Virginia, featuring the largest collection of International Tank and Cavalry artifacts in the world. AAF has over 120 Tanks and Artillery pieces, 150 Machine Guns and even a working Flame Thrower! We’ll even show you a mini radio controlled tank battlefield! If you are a collector or just love this stuff, this is a show you have to see.

The AAF Tank Museum is a living memorial dedicated to the Tank and Cavalry soldiers of the world. Before 1981 some of the artifacts that make up the AAF Tank Museum was a private collection belonging to Mr. William Gasser. Mr. Gasser felt that his collection would be beneficial in educating present and future generations to the sacrifices made and the technologies gained during war. Therefore, in 1981 the AAF Tank Museum was established as a non-profit charitable organization, and Mr. Gasser’s donated his private collection to the Tank Museum. Mr. Gasser is still active as Volunteer Director and Curator of the Tank Museum and his knowledge of military history has been a great asset to the museum.
