Airspeed AS.65 Consul

Twin-engine communications- and medical evacuation aircraft

    After the very positive experience with the Airspeed Oxford delivered during the Second World War, the Force Publique/Openbare Weermacht decided to reinforce its Oxford fleet with some Airspeed Consuls. Because these aircraft were equipped with a large freight door they could easily transport stretchers and were mainly used for medical evacuation flights.
