G-BKGD was the second WG-30 prototype, built at Yeovil and delivered to British Airways Helicopters (BAH) in October 1982.It was initially based at North Denes to service the gas drilling industry in the southern North Sea but subsequently spent three years on the Penzance/Scilly Islands scheduled passenger service. On transfer to The Helicopter Museum in 1995, G-BKGD was intended for use as an engine running demonstrator but remained in storage until 2010.It is a matter of some pride that two recipients of this award are associated with The Museum.David has just published his book "A Quiet Country Town" celebrating 100 years of Westland as an aircraft company.The Helicopter Museum received a 138,500 grant from the Coastal Communities Fund towards the restoration of the unique control tower and the pilots block, adjacent to the Museum entrance, on the old Weston Airport.The tower made use of a 1920s cab shelter, relocated from the sea front in Weston-super-Mare when the local council built the original grass airfield in 1935.
It was hoped that the work would create 16 new jobs as extra events are created while historical research and display work expands.A Bristol Bloodhound Mk2 surface-to-air guided missile, complete with launching platform, was delivered (left) to The Helicopter Museum on 16th February 2017.It had previously acted as gate guardian outside The Royal Air Force Museum, Hendon.Membership cards, allowing free entry to The Museum, will expire at the end of this year - 31st December 2015.
We are in the process of clarifying with the Museum Trustees as to whether free entry for Life Members can be extended for a longer period.We have now passed over another 100 making 700 so far, and will be attending the Christmas Fayre with our variety stall.
