Tugging in sleeves

After such an incredible war, the mighty Beaufighter was destined for a rapid and wide-sweeping stand down. Battle-hardened night-fighter, torpedo bomber and a strike weapon of awesome capability, it seemed that there was little use for the big Bristol with the advent of peace.

It was not just that the need had drastically shrunk but the layout that had made the twin so opportune when it first entered service in 1940 was working against it five years later. That slim fuselage was not capable of taking more advanced airborne interception gear and the remoteness of the gunner-turned-radar operator did not

The Hueys had been operated throughout their RSAF service by 120 ‘Kestrel’ Squadron, the RSAF’s oldest operational squadron, which was originally formed in 1969, although it did not gain its UH-lHs until 1977.

Despite the official withdrawl of the type from the RSAF, this is not quite yet the end for the
