VFW H-2

In the late-1960s, VFW (Vereingte Flugtechnische Werke) built an experimental open gyrocopter modelled on the Bensen B.8M. This VFW-H2 was unusual in having ducted rotor blade tip jets supplied from the 72hp McCulloch engine. The engine itself was mounted behind the pilot and drove a two-blade pusher propeller.

Sir,

Any idea where the H-2 is located ? Musemu or a storage facility?

Thanks,
