Herron/Keech Little Wing LW-5 Autogyro "Woodstock"

IMG_9468

Unlike a helicopter which creates life by having an engine turn the rotor on top, an autogyro creates life with an engine turning the propeller at the front of the aircraft, which pulls the craft through the air, which causes the rotor at the top to spin, which creates lift.

This particular autogyro got its nickname “Woodstock” from the Charles Schultz Peanuts character.  Built by Ron Herron and piloted by Andrew Keech “Woodstock” set and held world records in every category.
