Description

The DHC-4 Caribou was developed by De Havilland Aircraft of Canada, Ltd. in a joint effort with the Canadian Department of Defense. The prototype first flew in July, 1958. This tactical transport made the most of a capacious fuselage with a high, inverted gull wing and large upswept tail, which allowed steep angles of departure for its planned role as a STOL transport. Designed for flying into forward battle zones where short, unimproved airstrips mandated the ability to take off and land in very short distances, the Caribou could carry various loads, including 26 fully-equipped paratroops, 32 fully-equipped ground troops, 22 stretchers with wounded, or nearly 9,000 pounds of cargo, including vehicles. Caribou production ceased in 1973, with 307 aircraft built. A good number of these are still in operation today.
