Westland Sea King HAR5 SAR Military Helicopter

The Westland Sea King first flew in may 1969 and is a modified licence built Sikorsky S-61 Sea King powered by twin Rolls Royce Gnome engines. Following the end of the Cold War the Royal Navy's need for Westland Sea King HAR5 ASW (anti-submarine warfare) helicopters diminished and in consequence some Sea King HAR5's were modified for SAR (Search and Rescue) duties loosing the ASW equipment but retaining their Sea Searcher radar, the remainder were converted into utility helicopters or replaced with AgustaWestland Merlin HM1 helicopters.
