Tom Cruise film turns to Weston-super-Mare museum to get parts it needs to build a Lynx helicopter
EXHIBITS from Weston-super- Mare's Helicopter Museum are to feature in a new blockbuster movie featuring Tom Cruise, pictured.
Staff and volunteers from the museum have been busy collating parts and exhibits which will be used in the new Warner Brothers movie due to be released in March 2014.
In the new sci-fi epic, co-starring Emily Blunt and Bill Paxton, Cruise plays a character called Bill Cage, who must relive the same brutal battle against an unrelenting alien race over and over again.
When the production company needed a range of authentic helicopter parts to build a Lynx Helicopter, they called the museum. The museum, a registered charity, has the biggest collection of helicopters in the world, with 80 different types on show. Items required included aircraft rotor heads, main and rear rotor blades, two sets of side mounted rocket launchers and a host of smaller parts.
