The Bee Gyroplane was an Australian design with a McCullough engine. ZK-HAS was reregistered ZK-RAA in 1974. Still registered, it no longer bears any resemblance to the original design. Little known about Bee Gyroplanes. There was one at the now closed AirWorld museum at Wangaratta, Australia in 1991. It was open framed - no fuselage pod - in the style of a Bensen B-8M. With no Australian requirement to register this class of autogyro none appeared on the register. Not known how many were built but it was at least three. Photo from: State Library of New South Wales
