Ferguson TEA-20 Tractor

In preparation for Portrush Air Waves 2018 airshow at the start of September, the Ulster Aviation Society' volunteers took out the big helicopters through the small, roller door at hangar 1. Here, our mighty PUMA HELICOPTER XW222 is towed gently behind a vintage Ferguson TEA-20 Tractor by hangar volunteer, John Weir into our compound for a test lift by haulier in lieu of the journey to the North coast. Aided by Ray Spence, the late Harry Munn, Alan Chowney and Alec Phillps.

 

'Hangar Happenings' will show short insights into the enthusiam, dedication, skill, care and the pace of life at the Ulster Aviation Society in Maze Long Kesh, Lisburn.
