The Army and the RAF gave a helping hand to American Air Filter Ltd

The Army and the RAF gave a helping hand to American Air Filter Ltd., Cramlington, to get equipment high on the roof of Drax Power Station, near Selby, Yorkshire.
AAF had manufactured three large blow dowN mutes for the power station's superheater safety silencer valve, 250ft above the ground.
But the 18 sections of the equipment, the largest weighing 3,920 lbs, could not be placed with conventional lifting equipment, so the RAF gave a hand with a Westland Puma helicopter.
The Army supervised the slinging and harnessing of the 18 lifts with Mr Bob Parkin of AAF.
