Wonderful Wessex

More from John Hunter GAvA

Based upon the successful Sikorsky H-58, the Wessex was a winner from its first flight in June 1958. A large, highly adaptable and very flexible craft, the Wessex would be used in reasonable numbers by all of Britain’s armed forces. Whether it be off-shore search and rescue missions, troop transport in Northern Ireland, attacking submarines off the Falkland Islands or transporting VIPs, the Wessex would always do what it was asked and became a much loved aircraft for it.
