Title

Instruments and Radio of the Greater Rockford.

Description

A display of the instruments taken from the Greater Rockford airplane, spread on a carpeted floor. In Hassell's autobiography, A Viking with Wings (1987, p. 198), the caption underneath this photograph states, "A helicopter reconnaissance crew from the Danish Coast Guard vessel HDMS Ingolf recovered these instruments and radio equipment from The Greater Rockford. Bendix Corporation, a successor to their manufacturer, Pioneer Instrument, tested the instruments, [and] found they needed only minor adjustment and lubrication to be made fully airworthy."
