The Hiller OH-23 Raven was a three-place, light observation helicopter based on the Hiller Model 360. The Model 360 was designated by the company as the UH-12 which was first flown in 1948. The OH-23 trainer was jokingly nicknamed the “Hiller Killer” by US Army Aviation student pilots who had to fly it.
The Royal Navy used Hiller HTE-2s for several years from 1953 and later operated Hiller 12E’s for many further years as its basic helicopter trainer.
This one is quite the star. Its the actual helicopter flown by Pussy Galore in 007’s “Goldfinger”. For a 1960’s helicopter its unique in that its been totally restored to the point where it looks like its factory new, important if you want it to play a period role. To this end we took it to Italy for the filming of Guy Richies “Man From UNCLE”. For an old girl she didn’t miss a beat and looked stunning on screen! Give us a call for more details.

3/3 Although they did not hit the German aircraft, its pilot appears to have panicked and landed without his undercarriage locked down. In the crash landing the fuselage was badly damaged and the pilot severely injured. The other occupant received only slight injuries.' https://t.co/bzAJQFMqWj4th July 2020
2/3 Crossing the coast they fired very cartridges which they hoped would indicate that they had no hostile intentions.They continued their flight to RNAS Ford where they were chased by a Mosquito and two or three Hawker Typhoons. The RAF aircraft opened fire. https://t.co/07s2YqbKl74th July 2020
1/3 - Bf108 “F8-CA” of Stab/KG40. Two members of the Luftwaffe decided to desert and stole this aircraft at Châteaudun, taking off at 06.00 on 11 September, 1943, to fly to England. Flying at 3,000 ft, they headed for Selsey Bill, the nearest point on the English coast. https://t.co/qcKkmm84eR4th July 2020
OK, so lets bust the COVID quiet by running up our new B17 engine. Obviously VFR only, and despite the unusual undercarriage arrangement I guess it still qualifies as a taildragger. What could go wrong... #b17 #avgeeks https://t.co/8HkPWuYaYD1st July 2020
Filming on/in/around Airliners. The most common request we receive is that of a production wishing to film inside an airliner. Be that…
