Bad News for Yeovil

Don't know how badly this will hit AgustaWestland in Yeovil but the US Dept of Defense have scrapped the presidential helicopter project known as the VH-71 Kestrel.

The prototype for the VH-71 took it's first flight here in Yeovil on 2007 and as part of a $11 billion project the ending of it will be a big blow for the local economy here.
