I didn't know that helicopters had belly tanks too. During the summer of 1959, this military helicopter made an emergency landing at Deland Field on Echo Lake Road.


  1. No wonder it's pretty rare thing. They are unnecessary risk on landing so only on such rare photo you can see them under heli. I remember a photo of Little Bird with underbelly tank on Alaska and I did even found the article with photo of it.

  2. What an odd looking helicopter this thing was. It looks like its back is broken when sitting on the ground.
