    The big yellow Whirlwind/Wessex/Seaking tradition; always a favourite and the lads on board were always pleasant and quite happy to have a run to Ireland.
    The RN had a different colour scheme. Grey and Red.
    For now, everything hangs on the CoDF report, which is published, but after discussion with parties in government will probably commence being implemented in May or June.

      Not generally seen much on the East coast as RAF (yellow) Sea Kings operated out of RAF Valley

      the RN Grey & Red Sea Kings were seen in Cork (and Shannon?) as they operated out of RNAS Culdrose

        That was 771 Sqn. We had 22 Sqn out of Chivenor also, with their Yellow Wessex, as well as 202 Sqn Sea Kings from Brawdy.
        Don't forget we also had Nimrod from St Mawgan and Kinloss.
