Mlaaar!

Totally mong-looking helicopter built by the Saunders-Roe company and used by the Army Air Corps in the late '50s and '60s. It was so mong-looking that the RAF initially declined to be seen flying in it, and the navy had the (then) sexier looking Hiller HT1s and 2s to blat about in, so no luck there either. The Skeeter was totally outclassed by anything the opposition could field - including messenger pigeons.
