Tern Hill in the mid/late 60s. Whirlwind 10 had been in service for 'yonks'. One of the instructors (George K??) starting for early sortie. Engaged rotors, 'interesting' airframe antics, swift shutdown. Tail rotor attached in reverse. Thereafter pre-flight check included - Check tail rotor is aerodynamically the same as the tail pylon.
