|An RAF Seaking helicopter paid us a call this afternoon when it performed a medivac.|
The bright yellow Seaking made an interesting change from the white-painted Sikorskys operated by the Coastguard out of Stornoway.
The Coastguard helicopter was returning from Inverness having earlier performed a similar medivac operation. You can usually follow their movements via our Minch Shipping page as they transmit AIS data.
The Seaking is very much an old workhorse - used by both the RAF and Royal Navy. This particular helicopter, XZ588, is more than 25 yrs old and has seen service all over the world.
