BATSUB Bell 212 helicopter over the Blue Hole
Final flight for the Bell 212 helicopter in Belize
Thirty-nine years of Army Aviation history have drawn to a close in Belize, with the final flight from a Bell 212 helicopter from 25 Flight Army Air Corps.
25 Flights are there to support BATSUB, the British Army Jungle Training Unit, but Army helicopters have been in the skies over the dependency since 1972, and before that the RAF.
This marks the latest chapter in the drawdown of British forces in Belize.
