Description

A Bell Iroquois UH-1H helicopter gunship of 9 Squadron RAAF, possibly serial number A2-773, is being rearmed for another mission. An unidentified armament fitter is loading 2.75 inch rockets (7 on either side) as an officer observes. A 7.62 mm M-134 (GAU-2B/A) minigun is also visible. This aircraft later returned to Australia for further service.
