Among the many Helicopters on the ramp in Cork Airport today was a Royal Navy SAR Sea King,in Grey and Orange livery. Not sure what the purpose of the visit was,but it was filling up from the large tanker..

Grey and orange is a SAR bird for the RAF? or the RN SAR. One is yellow and the other is grey and orange. Can't remember which.
