| SCOTTISH AVIATION PIONEER
I would like to thank Mr Ian Adams of BEA Systems of the UK for photos and related documentation as well
THIS MAGNIFICENT STOL AIRCRAFT WAS USED IN THE LATE FIFTIES AND EARLY SIXTIES TO REACH PLACES ONLY HELICOPTERS COULD REACH. BECAUSE OF ITS VERY UNUSUAL SLOW FLIGHT CHARACTERISTICS, IT COULD TAKE OFF AND LAND ON VERY TIGHT SPOTS IN THE MOST HOSTILE WEATHER ENVIROMENT.
