Sea King

Sea King

The Westland WS-61 Sea King is a British license-built version of the American Sikorsky S-61 helicopterand built by Westland Helicopters. The aircraft differs considerably from the US Seaking, being powered by Rolls-Royce Gnome engines, British made anti-submarine warfare systems and a fully computerised control system. The Westland Sea King also has a role as a Commando troop transport mainly for export. Sea Kings are used extensivily in Air Sea rescue and many Sea King were used during the Falklands War, performing mainly anti-submarine search and attack, and also replenishment, troop transport, and Special Forces insertions into the occupied areas. On 23 April 1982, a Sea King HC4 was ditched while performing a dangerous transfer of supplies to a ship at night, while operating from the flagship aircraft carrier HMS Hermes. Another Sea King was lost, again from ditching into the sea, due to a systems malfunction. and. Five days later another Sea King, again from HMS Hermes, crashed into the sea due to an altimeter problem both sets of crew were rescued.
