HELICOPTER RESCUE STARTS HERE

HELICOPTER RESCUE STARTS HERE 

The RAF Helicopter Development Unit Old Sarum Airfield
Bristol Sycamore - this helicopter probably comes from Boscombe Down and is part of the rellocated air museum collection that is now at Old Sarum Airfield.

However these helicopters were stationed at Old Sarum during the 1960's -

"One new aspect of post war aviation, which was of interest to all three services, was the widespread use of helicopters. Accordingly, on 1 June 1961, the RAF element of the Helicopter Development Unit (HDU) was formed at Old Sarum, with a handful of early helicopter prototypes, Sycamores and Whirlwinds, to explore their military potential.
In 1965 a new Joint Helicopter Development Unit (JHDU) was formed at Old Sarum and it immediately absorbed the former HDU, which became a section entitled 'Short Range Transport Development Unit'."
