Agusta Bell Sioux AH Mk1

Agusta Bell Sioux AH Mk1 - XT131 (G-CICN)

The Agusta Bell Sioux AH Mk1, affectionately referred to as the 'clockwork mouse', was from the first batch of fifty ordered by the Army Air Corps and built by Agusta SpA at Gallerate in Italy in 1964.

These aircraft were ordered as stop-gaps for the Westland-built Sioux which started coming off the Yeovil production line in the Spring of 1965. The aircraft was taken on charge by the AAC at Middle Wallop on 3 July 1964 and for the duration of her military service was used for flying training and engineering familiarisation at Middle Wallop. XT131 was transferred to the Development and Trials Flight on 18 November 1977 until being subsumed into the AHAF on 11 September 1980. XT131 was handed over to the Historic Aircraft Flight Trust on 1 February 2015 and registered with the civilian register as G-CICN.
