Helicopter Speed Record Memorial

Link to map.

Just to the north of Westhay is the river brue and just beyond that is lay-by where there is a memorial stone commemorating the world speed record for a helicopter.

The record was set in 1986 by a Lynx helicopter and the record was still unbroken 30 years later in 2016 when the stone was placed and a Lynx flyby was made.
