In recent years, we’ve focused our efforts on one-on-one education and personal interactions, honoring the veterans who find their way to us, restoring and maintaining our aircraft, Huey 823. Meanwhile, the world shifted even more toward the digital space.

With a new team of eager and dedicated volunteers, we are now able to work toward a digital restoration, giving us the ability to reach more people. Our website will soon have a new look and new features that will reflect the technical work happening behind-the-scenes. We’re excited to build a new online presence that will uphold Liberty Warbirds’ mission to educate, honor, and restore!


Liberty Warbirds (formally Liberty War Bird Association) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which serves as a flying museum. By restoring Huey 823 to flight, we have the opportunity to engage with Vietnam veterans and their loved ones, allowing their stories to be told.

Our mission is to educate the public about the role of the UH-1 Huey helicopter in the Vietnam War, honor those who served, and restore this aircraft, allowing people to experience its impact.


Our website is undergoing maintenance and still needs a lot of work before it can pass inspection. This work, just like maintenance on Huey 823, is performed by volunteers. While we rebuild, we’ve partnered with a third-party platform to allow us to securely collect donations online.

The bulk of our funding goes toward operating and maintaining the helicopter, and we rely on those who believe in our mission to keep us flying.
