The Flying Bedstead, Hucknall.

Oakfield Plant and Transport Ltd were proud to play a small part in remembering โ€˜The Flying Bedsteadโ€™ this afternoon by assisting the team at the Rolls Royce Heritage centre to deliver a half scale model to the neighbouring school ‘Hucknall Flying High Academy’ due to open its doors tomorrow.

The Rolls-Royce Trust Measuring Rig (TMR), Otherwise known as the Flying Bedstead, was an experimental aircraft that was first flown on August 2, 1954 and used in the early development of VTOL (vertical takeoff-and-landing) aircraft also known as the Harrier Jump Jet.

The TMR was the WORLDS FIRST jet powered, vertical take off and landing aircraft.
