One thing I have noticed from afar travelling into and out of Weston-super-Mare are the old helicopters outside the Helicopter Museum. I have been to the museum on a fair few occasions, but these decaying helicopters are not part of the tour and you can’t as a general visitor access them.
On a bike ride the other day, the major roadworks and redevelopment has opened up the old airfield next to the museum, so I was able to get up to the fence to take a few pictures.
I have no idea what the plans are for them, are they just sources of spare parts, or are they awaiting restoration.
One thing that did stand out to me was the BAe Hawker Siddeley Harrier and Rolls-Royce Pegasus Engine Test Rig. As you can see it’s not a helicopter! It’s a pity it’s not on display.
