Fate:
This aircraft was constructed in 1958. It was the first Vertol 44 to arrive in Sweden when it came here in November 1958, and it soon entered service with the Swedish Navy. The helicopter had its first base at Bromma Airport, but it was later transferred to Torslanda in Gothenburg. It spent its last ten years at the Helicopter Division in Berga, Stockholm, after which it was donated to the Air Force Museum in Linköping in 1971. The museum states that the helicopter made its very last flight to Linköping (Malmen) the same year, and that it was retired after 3094 hours.

01001 is now a part of the Air Force Museum's excellent exhibition. It is by far the best preserved HKP 1 in Sweden - the other one is 01009.
