Great looking machine, I built and flew one 53 years ago.
Thanks for the memories Gerald. That was an awesome day.
Were you at that event?
Imagine the reaction you would get if you showed up at the airfield with that IF HELICOPTERS HAD NEVER BEEN INVENTED.
That's my Bensen in the video, well it was before I sold it anyhow.
That was my first aircraft rebuild. Sold it to buy the derelict Scorpion that I rebuilt.
Recently upgraded to a 162F
An old friend and myself was working on a Benson back in the mid 1960's and had it built except for the rotor blades. We watched a Benson fly and we went home and unbolted it and scraped it.
The old Bensens didnt have horizontal stabilizers on them so self trained pilots had more problems than what people do now.
