The S-51 was an early postwar development of the R-5. Although intended for the civilian market, most S-51s went into military service. For rescue operations the H-5 could be fitted with external closed stretcher carriers. This museum example was the first helicopter built for the RCAF in 1947 and served until 1959. It was then stored until transferred to the museum in 1964.
