Helicopter prototype destined for new home

Bristol Type 173 XF785 has been acquired by Aerospace Bristol, a museum due to open this summer. The helicopter was most recently at Filton, having previously been on display at Kemble, Glos, and at the RAF Museum Cosford. XF785 was the first of only five Type 173s to be built, and made its maiden flight in January 1952. www.aerospacebristol.org WITH THANKS TO ADAM JONES
