Echo 051 was a UNSC D77H-TCI Pelican dropship in service during the final battles of the Human-Covenant War.

Operational history[edit]

That year, the Pelican was used during the Battle for Earth. There, Echo 051 and another unknown Pelican were sent to retrieve John-117 and Thel 'Vadam, as well as Sergeant Major Avery Johnson and several Marines.

Unfortunately, the two Pelicans were ambushed by Covenant Banshees and Phantoms piloted by the Brutes. Echo 051 was able to maneuver away from the enemy fire, even though it took a direct hit on its front starboard engine as it was loading soldiers, spinning out of control and crashing upside down near a cliff where its survivors, including Sergeant Johnson, were captured by the Brutes. Its unknown wing man spun in the same direction but crashed in the river, sinking to the bottom.

Kilo 023 was later sent to retrieve the remaining survivors of Echo 051, Master Chief, and the Arbiter. [1].
