Theywere also shown examples of each to put the new educationto practical use.Everyone was wowed by thebroad spectrum of rotorcraft.There were many one-of-a-kindand very rare rotorcraft—theDuPont DP-1 vertical take-off  jet, the MonteCopter Model 15tri-phibian car/boat/helicopter,the Hiller Hornet which is ram- jet powered, and many more.The queen of the museum isthe Vertol H-21B Shawnee/Work Horse.
