The de Havilland Canada DHC-4 Caribou is a twin-engine, short takeoff and landing (STOL) cargo aircraft that was designed and manufactured by de Havilland Canada. It was first flown in 1958 and entered service with the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) in 1960. The Caribou was mainly used for military transport, especially in remote and rugged areas where conventional aircraft could not operate. It could carry up to 32 passengers or 8,000 pounds of cargo, and had a range of 1,200 miles.
The Caribou was also adopted by several other countries, including the United States, Australia, India, Malaysia, and Spain. It saw action in various conflicts, such as the Vietnam War, the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971, and the Falklands War. The Caribou was retired from Canadian service in 1971, and from US service in 1985. Some Caribous are still in use by civilian operators for humanitarian and commercial purposes.
