Wow, that Italian Sea King is the best! Here´s a Brazilian Sea King at sea in 1996, more to follow.

Some excellent variety in this thread, but I was hoping for more contributions. Well done to everyone so far, must be some USN ones from their twilight years?

Thanks Jumbo. They then flew a circuit and I managed to catch them NVG - which was nice. :ninja:

A few from me, first, the only active USN SH-3 that I could lay my hands on - taken at an airshow at Sanford, FL in 1995.

Image

Next up, a couple of preserved examples from the same USA trip found in Pensecola and Cecil Field respectively....

Image

Image

And finally, three from the Yeovilton show of 1995. First, an anonymous HC.4 freshly painted in UN colours (including a light blue "berret"!) but berift of serial (it was ZD480)....

Image

And staying with white(ish), a German Navy example......

Image

And finally, one of three Italian examples present for the show.

Up to now, I have been using my Webshots repository as source for photos posted on UKAR, but they have changed and force a max of 600 wide.

http://community.webshots.com/user/jetnoise2001

I have now set up a photobucket account and am trying that out. Here is a special schemed Sea King from a very wet fairford...

Perhaps the Sea King isn't quite as popular as we first thought, only a handful of you have responded to the call, including just two mods, c'mon lets see some more...

45 posts of photos?? Surely that's a bit more than a handful?? (or am is it late and I am missing some sort of irony?? :confused: )

Just been trawling my hard drive and found this one (there is a Sea King in it!!)

When you consider how long the Sea King has been around, and how many countries use it, compared to the Merlin!!! :butt:

I am surprised there hasn't been more.
