Liverpool’s first helicopter ? ?


This photo was taken by Dad and allegedly shows the first helicopter to land in Liverpool – in June 1953. However, a bit of research shows that British European Airways launched the first commercial helicopter passenger service in June 1950, travelling between Liverpool, England, and Cardiff, Wales, using a Westland-Sikorsky S-51. This is three years later and is not a Westland-Sikorsky S51 – so why were so many people gathered to watch it land in Liverpool city centre. Any one know the answer?
