de Havilland DHC-5 Buffalo

The de Havilland Buffalo is a STOL aircraft which was developed from the Caribou. The first Buffalo flew on April 9, 1964. Incorporating a wider fuselage and upgraded engines, the Buffalo has been delivered to many Air Forces around the world. The DHC-5 uses a "T" tail with a rear cargo door for vehicles, freight or air-dropping loads. It can seat 41 troops or 35 paratroops or carry a load of 24 casualties with six attendants. The current production version uses T-64 engines and has improved STOL performance.
