Remark Photographer
(cn 002) Perhaps the smallest manned aircraft the Army ever operated. This rare example was used, tethered to a rolling platform, by students needing some hover practice. Note that the platform itself is tethered to the corner posts. Untethered, this was a real helicopter, not a gyrocopter. One like it once appeared in cigarette ads in the US.
