Inland dive site Vobster Quay in Somerset has a new attraction – a SeaKing helicopter fuselage from Vector Aerospace.
Update: Ho Ho Ho! Vobster Santas is back, the 2022 event will be taking place on 11 December.
The helicopter is the latest diving feature and lies at 24m, between the two wheelhouses. It’s also close to the caravan, yacht Poppy and the Crushing Works.
Vobster’s Tim Clements said: “Thanks to the expertise of AJ Brunt Haulage, Rileys Cranes and the hardworking lads from 22 and 26 Engineers, the SeaKing made its final journey in spectacular style.
“Where she is sitting, in among existing attractions, it will make an excellent excursion, linking these together. We’re sure it will offer plenty of opportunity for underwater photographers, photogrammers and the ‘plane’ curious. For the ‘spotters’, we will try to dig up a bit of history on this particular airframe – watch this space!”.
