Bell 47H G-AZYB

The only example of this helicopter to have been sold in Europe (out of a total of 33 built) photographed inside The Helicopter Museum, Weston-super-Mare, on 20 April 2013.
C/n 1538 built in 1956 at Fort Worth, Texas, USA. This was a deluxe version of the three-seat lightweight Bell 47 and powered by a single Franklin 6V4-200-C32 6-cylinder piston engine. It was a greatly improved and enhanced version of the early Bell 47G, the main difference being the metal monocoque tail boom, which contained a baggage compartment.
Originally sold to Sabena Airways in Belgium, this machine was operated in Antarctica to support a Belgian scientific expedition. The helicopter was eventually written-off after a forced landing in the UK and was purchased by Elfan Ap Rees in 1985 before being restored to go on display.
