Phantom Pilot At Fleet Air Arm Centre in Yelverton
Visiting the Fleet Air Arm Station at Yelverton in Somerset, this image is of a Mrs Sayer sat at the controls of retired helicopter in 1987. It had been used during the Falklands War.
Only when the film was processed did she notice that there was anything beside her – what looks like a man sitting at the controls to her right!
She claims to remember feeling a chill whilst sat in the seat, despite the warm day. Dubious, given that she’s wearing a coat?
Perhaps, but there’s no denying that the image does seem to show a figure in a white shirt beside her…
