Sycamore demonstration tour

Sycamore demonstration tour

Back to the story

G1653. Landing at L'Arcade Du Palaise Du Cinquantenaire in Brussels. The Bristol Sycamore continues its demonstration tour around Europe in 1951. This was a very sophisticated small helicopter and the factory had high hopes of gaining the executive market. In 1951 the roads in Europe were still being built and the routes that we take for granted today were yet to come and the helicopter looked to be an answer.
