Product Description

This is a model of the helicopter which pulled the Apollo capsules out of the ocean. The Sea King was primarily used for anti-submarine warfare. Due to its in-built sonar system it could track submarines and strike them with torpedo's carried externally. The Sea King was also known for its role in recovering the astronauts who landed in the sea after their flights in the Apollo capsule. Its design, with sealed hull and stabilizing floats, enables it to land and take off direct on water. This capability, together with the folding main rotor, made it the helicopter that was used most frequently aboard American aircraft carriers. It is also used as a search and rescue and transport helicopter. Since its maiden flight in 1953 it has proved its worth as a robust work-horse in many crisis situations. Different export versions of the Sea King fly in Germany. England, Norway, Denmark, Italy, Japan, and numerous other countries, in addition to the USA. Scale:1/48
