HAT was the world's first commercial helicopter operator. The S-51 appears to be NC92803 which was delivered to the company from Camden, New Jersey, in September 1946. Air mail trials were flown in New York City, Boston and Philadelphia the following winter. A mail van is waiting on the right but we don't know where this photo was taken - do you? HAT filed for bankruptcy in October 1947. NC92803 went to the US Coast Guard as an HO3S, 233. It is now preserved in the Evergreen museum, Oregon. Photo from: Nationaal Archief (Netherlands)

Delivered in 1947, A80-1 was the first helicopter for the RAAF and the Australian military. Written off when it crashed into the Murray River on or about December 4, 1951. The RAAF didn't get into helicopters in a big way until the 1960s and the Vietnam War the arrival of UH-1 Iroquois. Went on to operate CH-47 Chinook, AS350 Squirrel and UH-60 Black Hawks. In 1989 all helicopters were transferred to the Army. Today civilian operators provide SAR at RAAF bases. Photo from: National Library of Australia
