The Bristol Type 192 Belvedere was based on the unsuccessful Bristol Type 173 civilian helicopter which had been designed by a team led by Bristol's Raoul Hafner, it first flew in 1953, only three were made and only one flew commercially for a short period with BEA. The military Type 192 prototype Belvedere helicopter flew on the 5th of July 1958, the helicopter was powered by twin engines but in an emergency either engine could drive both of the four bladed metal rotors.
