An insight into the design, construction and operation of the Royal Navy's classic search and rescue helicopter.
For more than 25 years the Agusta Westland Sea King has been that most welcome of sights around the English coast, providing essential Search and Rescue (SAR) capabilities for those in peril both on land and at sea. The Royal Navy variant - the Sea King HU Mk 5, which is the main focus of this book - is estimated to have saved literally hundreds of lives. Author and photographer Lee Howard has been given privileged official access to the Navy's SAR air and ground crews to offer fascinating insights into operating, flying and maintaining the Sea King.
Very fast delivery, i like these books, no problems at all.
Still to read this manual but looks good. Can recall these choppers flying from RAF Lossiemouth and in particular the annual flight low over Elgin with Santa waving out the side door. The Morayvia Museum, Kinloss has an example of the SAR version that you can climb in and out off. So hoping to visit next year and this manual should be helpful.
Great book. Fascinating history.
Great price , useful informative book
Bought as gift for my dad who was aircrew in RN. I think he was made up with this as there's an in depth history of development & construction plus where they were used. He particularly found it useful as he's writing about his Navy exploits &is a great reference. I've always found the Haynes books well produced.
