A helicopter which is travelling around the world will be touching down at The Helicopter Museum in Weston tomorrow (Saturday).
The helicopter – a Bell 407 – is part of a Russian and Polish crew’s attempt to fly around the world and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first non-stop helicopter flight across the Atlantic Ocean.
The Bell 407 will be at the museum in Locking Moor Road on Saturday. It will leave on Sunday, when it will fly to Scotland before its trans-Atlantic crossing.
