Painted to represent a locally-relevant RAF Rescue Wessex HC.2, this is really a Royal Navy HU.5 which spent its career from 1964 with 700, 848 and 707 NAS and then from 1968 as a test and evaluation helicopter with the A&AEE Boscombe Down, largely engaged on worldwide cold weather trials. It was withdrawn from use as an apprentice trainer at Farnborough from 1986 and as a fire trainer at Manston by 1995, moving to the museum around 2000.
