Have to start with one from my home team.

And then a couple of Dauphin variants... first, an Aéronavale example...

Image

...and finally, an Israeli AS.565MA Panther.

Dirk-Jan, I think you just wanted to post your S-70, I can't imagine it really has a SAR role!!! :grin:

Three from me - though I can't help thinking that these would be better situated in the Golden Oldies area. However, I can't see anything that says they need to be modern SAR craft.

First up, a Labrador at Goose Bay in September 1988...

Image

Going back more than a decade, one of Patuxent River's HH-46 SAR-birds in February 1975...

Image

And, of an even older vintage, a German H-34 at Lee-on-Solent in mid-1972...

Image

Is it my imagination, or were things more colourful back then???

Some interesting machines appearing in this thread, but nothing is really winning the kudos at the moment, Kier's Super Frelon is nice as is the Israeli Dauphin but I think there is more out there in people's archives...have a trawl tonight chaps!!!

Here's a couple more, first the now retired HH-1 Huey of the Fallon 'Longhorns' SAR Team and a Kamov Ka-32 of EMA, which is contracted for SAR by the Portuguese Department of the Interior!!!

I think this qualifies as a SAR aircraft? Please let me know if it's used otherwise. Seen at Rome in 2006

Probably because it isn't a Sea King :clown: , see here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sikorsky_S-62

Didn't realise it even exsisted.
