On 09-09-09 the Alouette II retired from Belgian Defence, after 50 years of dedicated services. 

We propose a walkaround of this prestigious helicopter especialy edited for the modelists, as to find some fine details of this helicopter and maybe make a wonderful realisation.

You will find details from the various versions like Medevac, Parachutist-drop or specialy equiped with inflatable balloons when flying over the sea.
