Hunting-Percival Pembroke – Introduction

The Hunting-Percival Pembroke was a british-built transport plane. It was widely used, including in the Danish Air-Force. It was used as a search-and-rescue aircraft. The plane would identify the  target at sea, and a Sikorski S-55C helicopter would then be sent to pick it up. This may sound ‘backwards’, but was done due to the slow speed and poor range of the S-55C. Indeed, all Pembrokes except one, were scrapped as soon as the Sikorsky Si-61 Seakings were purchased.
