I just got the cool news from Barker Hangar.
As schedule, James Bond’s world smallest jet which appeared in his movie “Octopussy”, will be displayed during our Inspiration event!
Below is the details about jet!
Super big thanks to the director of the “Museum of Flying”, Mr. Daniel Ryan !!
The BD-5 “Microjet” holds the Guinness Book record as the world’s smallest jet. The aircraft was a “kit” plane that was first delivered in May of 1972. About 100 of the aircraft are still airworthy around the world. This actual aircraft was featured in the opening scene of the James Bond movie “Octopussy”. The aircraft is capable of speeds up to 300 mph and a range of 1,200 miles. A number of these aircraft performed on the Air Show circuit for many years. You can search the internet for more information if you like.
