BRISTOL TYPE 170 FREIGHTER

(1950-1966)


The Bristol Type 170 Freighter was a British twin-engine aircraft designed and built by the Bristol Aeroplane Company as both a freighter and airliner, although its best known use is as an air ferry to carry cars and their passengers over relatively short distances.


The Bristol Type 170 was designed originally as a rugged, heavy duty transport to operate from unimproved airstrips. The Freighter is a somewhat bulbous and cumbersome-looking aircraft. The square sectioned fuselage was designed to be clear of internal obstructions. The flight deck was high in the fuselage nose, accessed via a ladder. The cockpit sits atop the forward fuselage with two large clam shell doors at the nose.


Purchased in early 1950s by Pakistan Air Force, 81 were delivered, Transport and communications Freighters of No.12 VIP Squadron were painted silver with a blue fuselage line and green propeller spinners; No.6 Squadron aircraft were painted with camouflage patterns and red spinners; the Transport Conversion Squadron aircraft had brown spinners.


Phased out in 1966 and replaced with C-130 aircraft.

DOUGLAS DC-3 DAKOTA

(1947-1955)


The Douglas DC-3 is an American fixed wing, propeller driven aircraft whose speed and range revolutionized air transport in the 1930s and 1940s. Because of its lasting impact on the airliner industry and World War II it is generally regarded as one of the most significant transport aircraft ever made. Many DC-3s are still used to this day in all parts of the world. The aircraft's legendary ruggedness is enshrined in the light hearted description of the DC-3 as "a collection of parts flying in loose formation."


Transferred to Pakistan on formation of the Royal Pakistan Air Force (14 August 1947). Used to start the crucial valley flights; to Pakistani Outposts in Azad Kashmir.32 aircraft were in service; eventually retired in 1955 from Pakistan Air Force service.

GRUMMAN HU-16 ALBATROSS
SEA SURVEILLANCE, SEARCH AND RESCUE AIRCRAFT

(1950-1981)..


The Grumman HU-16 Albatross is a large twin radial engine amphibious flying boat. Originally designated SA-16, it was renamed HU-16 in 1962. Albatross was developed to land in open ocean situations to rescue downed pilots. Its deep-V cross-section and substantial length enabled it to land in the open sea. The Albatross was designed for optimal 4 ft seas, and could land in more severe conditions, but required JATO (Jet Assisted Takeoff) for taking off in 8-10 ft seas or greater. The aircraft had a crew of 4-6 and could accommodate 10 passengers.

F-27 Fokker - The low floor level of the fuselage, large cargo holds and removable front cabin make it a successful transport aircraft.
