A classic piece of Aviation and Design
September 22, 2014 • Leave a Comment
This is a Bell 47 G-2 from about 1952.
It's rare to get to see a part of aviation history up close and personal outside of a museum. A classic combination of good design and practical use, an early version of this Arthur Young designed helicopter hangs in the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
Chinook Helicopters in Abbotsford, British Columbia still use the Bell 47 for their initial flight training. I got to fly this very helicopter for an hour, it was a fun ride :)
