Rolling Thunder had the pleasure of being invited to the Helicopter Museum at Weston Super Mare here in the UK to their Military Vehicle and Living History show.

The museum has the largest collection of Helicopters in the world including The Queens Wessex Helicopter, The world speed record lynx Helicopter and the mighty Russian Hind. 

As well as these they also have a Loach and a UH-1H which served in Vietnam.

RT put on a large display of kit and equipment from the 25th Infantry and 7th Air Cav 
as well period military vehicles. 

Some of ours members also portrayed Helicopter crewmen.

There was plenty of interest from other re-enactors as well as the public.

We were also lucky enough to be allowed in and around the Huey for Photographs 
as well as receiving lots if information about the Aircraft.

We also had the pleasure of meeting three new members to RT, 
good to meet you and thank you for joining guys.

All in all a very enjoyable weekend, thank you to everyone at the Helicopter museum for a great weekend and look forward to next years show.

A subject not often seen at shows is the ARVN (Army of the Republic of Vietnam)

Now something which was not in the 60/70's is HDR (high definition resolution) which is a treatment that I have applied on some of the above pictures. The purists will not like it, 
but this gives the photos a very drammatical look.
