Sea King at RAF Boulmer
RAF COASTAL COMMAND
could the phrase, 'when the going get's tough, the tough get
going', be more aptly applied than to the emergency helicopter
service provided by RAF Coastal Command. As for all of Britain's
armed services, crew selection is based on high individual
natural skills and aptitude necessary to do the job. Training is
amongst the best in the world and performance and results come
second to none.
'Sea King' helicopter, has had a long and distinguished service
record. Though now somewhat long in the tooth, its performance
was chosen to match the complex tasks and varied challenges of an
exacting service requirement. Whilst it is expensive to maintain,
its specification has not been bettered.
