By the mid-1960s, Bell Helicopter’s Model 205 and UH-1 were well established within the civilian and military world as reliable transport helicopters. Of course the UH-1 found fame in the Vietnam War as the aircraft that saved many lives of troops and civilians and became the most recognisable helicopter in the world. In the mid-60s, with the war in Southeast Asia still raging and getting bigger, the Canadian government contracted Bell to develop a twin engine aircraft based on the stretched Bell 205 airframe. Designated the CUH-1N, the ‘Twin Huey’ first flew in 1968 and the Canadian Government ordered 50 airframes. Later the CUH-1N designation was replaced with the CH-135 to better reflect the Canadian system.
