McDonnell 38 XR-20 Little Henry

11/30/2009. Remarks by Bob Cieslak: "I was 10 years old when I first saw "Little Henry fly at a McDonnell open house. I remember that everyone was simply amazed when they saw it fly. Not only was it small and 'cute', but most of us had never seen a helicopter before. While hovering, the pilot waved to the crowd, and we waved back. Exciting stuff for a 10 year old! 'Little Henry' is currently on display at the National Museum of the USAF at Wright-Patterson AFB, Dayton, Ohio."
