AH-1 Cobra Attack Helicopter at South Plainfield Monument Park

Located on the pedestal to the left, as you look at the park from the street, is a U.S. Army AH-1 Cobra Assault Helicopter. This particular aircraft (tail #69-16442) was purchased by the Army in May of 1970. In August of 1970, it was sent to Vietnam to participate in that conflict. During its’ tour in Vietnam, this aircraft was assigned to numerous units, including but not limited to: 227th ABAH1 Cav., 227th BN, various Assault Helicopter Companies (57th, 361st, 129th), as well as other units. In February 1973, the aircraft was sent home for duty at various bases in the United States. We are still researching the records for the years beyond 1975.
