Photo Comment

The Alouette II was the world's first succesful turbine-powered helicopter and one of the first to be used aggressively, by the French in Algeria. The Germans tested five Alouettes with SS.11 missiles here at Bückeburg in 1962, but did not proceed with this. This machine is preserved with dummy missiles. Its identity is unclear.
