    Default ID needed on RAF museum pieces

    Greetings everyone,

    I need an ID on the following exhibition pieces in the RAF Museum in London. The photos aren't mine and were taken in 2009. All and any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Given that the answer to your query on the first one is to be found on the picture itself - hint, hint - maybe you would benefit from some research and picture matching ....

    That link is helpful, but I can't quite read the description on that plate in the first picture.

    The EH-101 was one of the development aircraft (PP5 I think), and as it says on the side, was used in C-17 compatability trials - its last job before going on display.

    Its was really the EHI 01 (European Helicopter Industries 01) but some typo in the office turned it into EH 101
