Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King   5.25"   4.5"

Distinctive in their brilliant yellow colour scheme, the Westland Sea King HAR.3 helicopters of the Royal Air Force are currently used for search and rescue duties around the UK's coasts and mountainous regions. Replacing the Whirlwind HAR.10 helicopters, they entered service in early 1978 and the force of 16 were all in use the following year. All are nominally on strength of Nos.22 and 202 Squadrons at Lossiemouth, Scotland, but are deployed in pairs at stations around the coast. Two are also with 78 Squadron in The Falklands. They have a crew of two, plus an air electronics operator/winch operator and loadmaster/winchman.

Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King

Designed to meet a US Navy requirement for an all-weather amphibious helicopter, the Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King first flew on March 11, 1959. Originally a submarine hunter-killer, the Sea King has since been used in a variety of operations, from search and rescue, executive transport and communications to anti-ship and airborne early warning. Its five main rotor blades and tail section fold for stowage aboard aircraft carriers, and its hull can remain temporarily watertight for water landings-a risky maneuver attempted only in emergencies. When deployed by aircraft carriers, Sea Kings serve as plane guard and are the first in the air and the last to return.
