A rare outing for this licence-built Cierva C.30A, which is thought to have 706 as its c/n. Was briefly on the British register in 1934, but moved to Norway as LN-BAD and even served in the Norwegian military as 99. Was sold to Sweden and was registered as SE-AFI until 1951 when it was purchased by a Dutch businessman who presented it to what later would become the Aviodrome at Lelystad. The aircraft has always been displayed indoors, and was recently painted up as PH-HHH.

The Balloon Park of the Danish army air force took delivery of two Cierva autogyros in February 1936 and July 1937. In October 1940 M-1 and M-2 were sold to Sweden as SE-AKW and SE-AKZ. M-2 is seen at Vlissingen (Flushing), Netherlands, presumably during its delivery flight. In the background are two locally built De Schelde Scheldemusch light aircraft.

Built in 1934, this autogyro has a history in Scandinavia as LN-BAD, 99 of the Norwegian military, and SE-AFI. It represents PH-HHH (c/n 712), also built in 1934 as G-ACWJ, which was bought by Dutch private pilot Jacob Mees in 1934 and ended up in the RAF as AP508.

First time for me to see and photograph an autogiro. Autogiros have rotors instead of wings but unlike helicopters they are not powered so unable to hover. The rotor spins around as the autogiro is driven forward by the propeller and generates lift. Autogiros were used by the RAF to check and/or calibrate radar stations as they were able to fly in very tight circles. Indeed at one point the RAF's Radar Calibration Unit was based at Duxford for some time during WWII. Previously G-ACUU

This Avro-built Cierva Autogiro was built in 1934 and imported into Australia, being registered on 14 June 1935. It was used by Engineer Andrew Thyne Reid for private flights, including between his properties in Sydney and Yass. Impressed during the war, it was used in trials for the development of a 'flying jeep' autogyro. Returned to Reid after the war, he continued to use it until 1949. Subsequently donated to the Royal Aero Club of NSW, later purchased by the Powerhouse Museum where it is on display.
