Bristol Belvedere

The Bristol Type 192 Belvedere is a British twin-engine, tandem rotor military helicopter built by the Bristol Aeroplane Company. It was designed for a variety of transport roles including troop transport, supply dropping and casualty evacuation. 

This Bristol Belvedere was in display at RAF London.

It was operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) from 1961 to 1969. The Belvedere was Britain’s only tandem rotor helicopter to enter production, and one of the few not built by Boeing or Piasecki.

The RAF Belvederes were involved in combat in Aden Emergency and Borneo.

The helicopters were retired in 1969.
