Bell 47

The Bell 47 is a single-rotor, single-engine, light helicopter meticulously designed and manufactured by Bell Helicopter. Introduced in 1946, the Bell 47 evolved from the third Bell 30 prototype, crafted by the exceptional Arthur M. Young. Initially, several variants were created, each differing in appearance and construction. These variations included open cockpits or sheet metal cabins, fabric-covered or open structures, and even an option for a four-wheel landing gear. A pivotal moment in the Bell 47’s history occurred in 1953 with the introduction of the 47G, notorious for its distinctive “soap-bubble” cabin and exposed tail. The Bell 47 gained additional prominence when the television station KTLA of Los Angeles acquired a helicopter for news reporting purposes. The “Telecopter,” equipped with a television camera, made its inaugural flight in 1958, with inventor John D. Silva on board.
