Puma Spares Arrive
On Thursday 1st October 2020, another Puma fuselage arrived at the museum. Today’s arrival was accompanied by a significant collection of Puma spares.
The collection of donated items was transported from its former location with Askari Aeroparts in the south of England, to the museum as part of our efforts to effect a complete rebuild of Aerospatiale Puma HC Mk 1 helicopter, XW208.
As well as the Puma 9L-LSG fuselage, other significant items that arrived for the project were: a rotor head, gearbox, rotor blades, tail booms, tail rotor blades and troop seats. As with the arrival of XW208 back in February 2018, this latest collection and delivery project was completed by local contractor Gillivers Haulage.
