SIKORSKY S-51 AT SCRAPYARD IN SALT RIVER
 
Ex-Autair Sikorsky S-51 ZS-HBT was a familiar sight at the Barnetts scrapyard (visits on 1974-03-04 and 1974-03-25) in Salt River (situated a few kilometres from Cape Town) for many years. The helicopter was later swapped for a replica of a Spitfire Mk IX and donated to the South African Air Force Museum.
 
Sikorsky S-51 construction number 51-102 was delivered to the SAAF (where it became A1 and served, amongst others, with 17 Squadron) in August 1948. A1 was used in the air-sea-rescue role at Langebaanweg and was fitted with a hoist on the left-hand side to aid the ASR duties. In addition to the ASR duties the helicopter performed range duties, mountain search and rescue and assisted the SA Police with various tasks. A1 was involved in two rollovers on 9 September 1955 and 26 July 1956. The helicopter was registered ZS-HBT in March 1965.
