The Bell 47 (military designation Bell H-13) is a light two- or three-seat helicopter developed by Bell Aircraft Corporation.
It became the first civil helicopter to receive flight certification in the United States on March 8, 1946. Its variants were found worldwide until the 1980s and beyond. From 1960 to 1976, 18 Bell 47s were in service with the Austrian Armed Forces.
It was used by the U.S. military, for example, in the Korean War, both for transporting wounded and as a light attack helicopter.
In the U.S. television series M*A*S*H, the military version of the Bell 47 (H-13) is used to transport the wounded.
