This week the Helicopter Museum has played host to a number of MOD apprentices. The chaps in question have been assigned to numerous projects and have been led by Restoration Manager Rod Holloway over the past two days. After already whizzing through the first project assigned to them, the apprentices have been set on to the Campbell Cricket, which as you may recall, has been recently donated to the Helicopter Museum.
To aid work on this aircraft, a number of the donated plans and technical drawings provided with the gyroplane have been digitized; partly for ease of convenience, partly to prevent the quite fragile plans being further handled and damaged. Some of the more interesting documentation is shown below.
