The US Marine Corps decommissioned its last Bell UH-1N Huey helicopter on 28 August 2014, marking a milestone in the transition to the newer UH-1Y Venom.

The official goodbye was done at NAS New Orleans JRB, where the final UH-1N served with the detachment of Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 773 (HMLA-773).

The final operational deployment flight of a UH-1N was on 5 November 2013, when a machine assigned to Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 266 took off from Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, finishing the eight month deployment with the the Kearsarge Amphibious Ready Group serving the 5th and 6th Fleet at that time.
