old life saver

By rod45
This is a old shot of one of the SAR wessex helicopters that were based at RAF coltishall in norfolk before it closed some years ago. (just down the road from me) at the time of taking the picture the aircraft was doing a display at northrepps airfield near cromer,the picture here is scanned from a slide. the wessex may have been old but was still quite agile for a approx 7 ton aircraft as can be seen from the picture.

Ah my old office, I was on 22Sqdn operating from Leuchars and had many a happy year in the cockpit of these wonderful aircraft.

Super capture. I think these helicopters still do air sea rescue in Cornwall
