A glacial meltwater stream, 2.8km long, forming in an ice field in Huey Gully between Mount Keohane and Scholars Peak, flowing to the north-central shore of Lake Fryxell, in Taylor Valley, Victoria Land. Feature depicted on: NZ AntTopo50-MF10
The name was suggested by hydrologist Diane McKnight, leader of a U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) team that made extensive hydrological studies in the Lake Fryxell basin, 1987-94. The name acknowledges support received by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) field team in Taylor Valley from U.S. Navy Squadron VXE-6 and its twin engine UH-1N "Huey" helicopters.
