 The Blackburn Beverley was a heavy transport plane built by the Blackburn and General Aircraft Company.

It saw service with the RAF Transport Command between 1957 and 1967.  

They could transfer paratroopers and cargo and ware particularly important as they could land on rough desert terrain.

After a decade of sterling service, the Beverley, which was operated by the RAF Transport Command, was retired by the RAF in 1967 and replaced by the Hercules.
