No doubt this was the helicopter of the Vietnam War. Everybody loves the Huey. Simple, fast, maneuverable, durable, and saved a ton of lives. If you ever wondered what it felt like (somewhat), racing into the frontlines and what these brave men had to experience, well, you can get a taste…on vacation that is.
Introducing FlyTheHuey.zo.sa which is a company out of S. Africa that takes tourists on a ride in a real Vietnam War vet aircraft. But this isn’t just any ride. They will do actual combative maneuvers, the same tactics they used in the war. In other words, you’re going to go REALLY LOW, REALLY FAST, AND TURN REALLY SHARP during your experience. Definitely not for the faint of heart. But this is absolutely for you if you’re an adrenaline junkie or perhaps you even served in the war and want to get a taste of nostalgia.
We’re talking about South Africa. No, not the sandy, hot, and desert-y part of Africa. This is where the beautiful beaches, great weather, and wine is located. You’re also going to see incredible beach line views and the iconic Table Mountain during this ride. It’s definitely worth taking a look at if you’re ever planning on visiting. Check out the video below.
So it’s going to cost you about $282 for a 30min ride. Absolutely worth it. On the site is says there is a 100% safety record in case you were wondering.
