AN UNUSUAL sight will be returning to Hereford's High Town at the weekend.

Shoppers were greeted last weekend by the arrival of a Robinson R22 helicopter, which went on display in front of the Butter Market in what owners Tiger helicopters believe to be a first for the city.

"We decided to put the helicopter on display to attract people to learn to fly and to give them the opportunity to get up close to a full sized helicopter," Tiger spokesperson Garry Hodge said.

Based at Shobdon Airfield, Tiger Helicopters was founded in 1992, and has since built up a impressive reputation, from training overseas police helicopter pilots to individuals.

The Robinson helicopter and the Tiger team will be back in Hereford on Saturday, November 30.
