  Corgi Aviation Archive AA27002, 1:72 Scale diecast model of Westland Puma HC.Mk 1 XW214 of 33 Sqn RAF, based at RAF Odiham, England in March 1973. Limited edition of only 1,800 pieces, complete with uniquely numbered card.

Length 10" Width 8.25"

Like many Pumas, XW214 served with the RAF in Northern Ireland, operating as a transport helicopter throughout the region during the start of the troubles. The Puma proved to be an invaluable machine, able to carry large loads and survive the sporadic small arms fire that occasionally greeted British forces. XW214 suffered major damage when it had an altercation with a hanger door en-route to a photo shoot with Airfix for the unveiling of their new 1:72 Puma model kit in March 1973. Ending up on its side and damaging a number of cars, another Puma had to be hastily repainted to take part in the unveiling.
