Royal Air Force Westland Belvedere HC1 twin rotor heavy lift transport helicopter
The first twin rotor helicopter used by the RAF for troop transport and heavy lift was the Westland Belvedere HC1. It was able to carry 2720kg (6000lb) of Freight. Large bulky loads that could not fit into the aircraft could be slung beneath from strong points on the helicopter fuselage. It was able to carry 18 fully combat kitted troops and when used as a Casevac it could carry 12 stretcher cases. Westland Belvedere HC-1 helicopters of N0.26 Squadron based in Aden operated against rebels in Tanzania and also supported the army in Southern Arabia. In the Far East they saw service in support of the British Army in 1962 - 66 Brunei campaign. It was given the nickname 'Flying-Longhouse' after the long huts used by the natives in that campaign.
