HAS ANYONE WONDERED OR DOES ANYONE KNOW WHY THE HISTORIC FLT DOES NOT HAVE ANY ROTARY WING AIRCRAFT IN IT ?

SURELY WITH THE ASSOCIATED FAA HISTORY AND AT TIMES THE ONLY AIRCRAFT IN THE FAA, IT WOULD BE FITTING TO HAVE AN AIRWORTHY HELICOPTER AND NOT JUST PROPS AND JETS?

WESSEX 5 GETS MY VOTE. :wink:

The Royal Navy Historic Flight does in fact own three helicopters; two Wessex V's and a Wasp. These are currently at Sultan, soon to be moved to Yeovilton.

However, there are no plans to get them into a flying condition in the immediate future, as (like everywhere else) there is no money to make them airworthy at present.

Please make your donations to RNHF, RNAS Yeovilton ............

Rotary's not exactly the steely harbingers of death that the general public want (and will pay) to see, is it? Swordfish flying the Ensign - yes. A Wessex?
