Initial Work

Work Starts Spring 1995

Arriving at the Museum car park (its home for the first three years) in early November 1994 and a broken wrist as a result of a small accident “making it safe” the work outside could not be started until the spring of 1995.

In the meantime the undercarriage units were de-corroded, stripped, restored and re-painted in the warmth of Mac’s factory at Malton, North Yorkshire

In the summer of 1995 the restored undercarriage was fitted and WH991 was able to move around when necessary.

August 1995 saw the arrival of the rest of WG718 from Stratford on Avon,

The tail boom and main rotor blades having been recovered in the spring.
