David Lawrence - Sea King Rescue
Westland Sea King Aviation Helicopter Birthday Card by Aviation Artist David Lawrence
The three elements of the Rescue services around Britain's coast are shown in this one picture. Providing sir support for over twenty years, the Westland Sea King took over from the company's previous Whirlwind and Wessexcated helicopters and has been a great success. The all-volunteer RNLI operate a range of different lifeboats and are highly efficient at what they do. The Coastguard, shown here with one of their Land Rovers support both on shore and enable the quick reaction of all three services to any emergency.
Pre-dated by teams such as the Yellow Jackets and Black Diamonds, the team was initially formed with the Folland Gnat but moved on to the superb Bae Hawk in the 1980s. Now based at RAF Scampton, their skill and distinctive Hawks make them a crowd pleaser wherever they go.
David Lawrence’s aviation art birthday card shows them in the middle of their routine and would be ideal for any aviation fan, especially those of fast jets.
