The Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum hosted Michael Sequeira’s historic Bell 47G on display February 20. The aircraft was originally a Bell 47B, serial number 5, later converted to the 47G standard. Several rides around the St. Louis riverfront were raffled and a photo session past the Gateway Arch was also flown. (Photos: Carmelo Turdo and Fred Harl, The Aero Experience).
Below are some photos from the recent visit, a Boeing photo of the aircraft in McDonnell Aircraft prototype colors, and a McDonnell Aircraft video of the aircraft’s executive transport mission. More details about the aircraft will be forthcoming as available.
