Marine Corp gets 100th H-1 helicopter

The U.S. Marine Corp. got its 100th H-1 helicopter in a special Wednesday afternoon delivery ceremony at Bell Helicopter's Amarillo assembly center.

The H-1 helicopter program includes the UH-1Y utility helicopter and the UH-1Z attack helicopter.

Even Bell's president and CEO was at the ceremony saying, "We are deeply proud to be the Marine Corp's partner in these aircraft. They are among the most advanced, capable and affordable attack and utility helicopters serving today."

Onlookers said the affair, indeed, was a memorable one. Best of all, some said, it was short and sweet.
