Preservation Profile
Whirlwind XR486 photographed by BILL FISHER after restoration at Tattershall this year.
This Sixties photograph of XR486 in service with the Queen's Flight was taken at the London Heliport at Battersea - it is undated, but must have been before February 15, 1967, the date the Pontin’s Brantly B.2A G-ASHD in the background was written off.
