My father was stationed in Alaska following WWII. He was in a search and rescue unit there. I have some photos of an R5 flying and on the ground. I'd like forward them to someone who would be able to use them. He took many photos of planes assigned to the unit, and also those that just flew in for whatever reason, including B29's.

built in England under licence 1947, too late for the war it would have to be the R-4 it activly flew in ww II, the S-51 was used in Los Angeles Airways to deliver mail,replaced by the S-55 (1950 odd to 1975)

A lot of that would've depended on the scenario. If it was still occupied territory at the time it would have most likely been carried out by British Lysander aircraft and could've only carried maybe two persons out at a time. If it was more front-line action it would likely be a light liaison aircraft like a Taylorcraft Auster carrying one person.

My 9th grade son is writing a WW II story for his language arts class. He has British airmen rescuing a group of airmen outside a French town using helicopters. Would that have been done, and if so, which helicopters would have been used? How many would the aircraft carry?
