Some more to keep the thread alive.

SH-3H on the USS Nimitz in 1986 when the ship visited Wilhelmshafen.

Two years later USS Roosevelt anchored in Wilhelmshafen, unfortunately with the same air wing and squadrons.

Finally a slide of a Belgian Mk48 that I found while cleaning the attic. The photo was taken from the lighthouse of Katwijk during a SAR-demonstration.

Here are 2 of my favourite photos, from my days flying the Sea King HAR Mk 3. The occasion was a Mountain Rescue Team exercise in the Lake District in the early 80's. I can't credit the photos unfortunately, let alone date them, even checking my logbooks. I think the photos were taken by a police photographer who produced many good shots for us. This one is really well composed in my view:

Image

ISTR that BN was PiC that day. In the next picture I'm sticking my head out the left hand window and giving a salute. :smile: It looks like JM is on the ground stropping someone up ready for lift.

I ended up with over 2,600hrs on the Sea King - one of the best helicopter types I've flown

Cheers,
Hdcr

...and here's another, taken by John Radford, who happened to be flying around near us at Beadnell Bay, just south of Alnmouth in Northumberland on 1st December 1981. He was a professional air-to-air camera bloke, although we didn't know that at the time; he called up to see if he could join in for a snap. I don't recall what his aeroplane was - possibly a PA38. My crew that day were OW, JM and the late Jock M.
Note the characteristic skin wrinkles down the tail boom. This was in the days (before GPS, FLIR, NVG) of Decca TANS. I can still remember the lat and long, and National grid ref positions for Boulmer all these years later - we had to programme the TANS before every takeoff, as it had (much like me nowadays), no memory to speak of most of the time. You'll note the large oblong box (Decca TANS aerial) behind and below the main cabin door - it's not there on today's much modified SAR machines.

Cheers,
Hdcr
