Sud Aviation Alouette II SA318C, A-41

Belgian Army helicopter photographed inside The Helicopter Museum, Weston-super-Mare, on 20 April 2013. C/n 1958, first flight 12 March 1955. The first turbine-powered helicopter in the world to go into production, having been completely re-designed from the original Alouette I around the then new 400 shp Turbomeca Artouste I turbo-shaft engine. Over 1,300 Alouette IIs were manufactured by 1975 when production ceased.
The A-41 seen here served with the Belgian Army in liaison, photographic, communication and training roles from its delivery in 1967 until being withdrawn from service in 2005. Following a period in storage it was then passed to the Brussels Air Museum and exchanged by Elfan Ap Rees for a surplus Bristol Sycamore. It arrived at the Helicopter Museum in February 2008.
