A Royal Air Force C-17 Globemaster has recently been loaded with a British Army Bell 212 helicopter before heading to Brunei.

A team of military and commercial contractors will travel to Brunei to offload and assemble the helicopter where it will be used by the Army Air Corps at the British Army’s training base.

Leading up to this, engineers and logisticians at the Joint Air Delivery Test and Evaluation Unit based at RAF Brize Norton used an exact replica 'mock up' of the C-17 in their hangar to work out a tie down scheme for the safe transport of the helicopter before it was loaded onto the real thing.

Brunei is a country located on the north coast of the island of Borneo in Southeast Asia. The local tropical climate and terrain is well suited to jungle training and the Jungle Warfare Division run courses for all members of the British Army.
