I didn't see the show but just googled it to read about it. I tried to watch the videos Discovery had on the web site to see if I could see it, but nothing played. I have been to Adam's shop to look at the Brantly he had there. It's not his (or wasn't at the time), but he was storing it for the owner. If it's the same one I saw at this shop, that one used to be on display at the helicopter museum in West Chester, PA. I have photos of all over the helicopter and log books. At the time I made him an offer to buy it to restore, but the owner still had emotional attachments to it and decided he wasn't ready to sell.

Is this the helicopter they showed? This is when it was hanging in the helicopter museum.

It looked good up in the air, but look why it was up there. The inside was pretty bad. Look in the background of this photo and you'll see some of the bikes in Adam's shop.

Both of my pictures are of the same Brantly. From a distance, hanging up on the ceiling it looks pretty good. Get close and it needed a lot of work.
