XP345 initially served the CFS at Terhill in camouflage, later gaining the yellow overall scheme for SAR work. It is now exhibited by the Yorkshire Helicopter Preservation Group in the markings carried after being returned to camouflage for service at RAF Akrotiri with the UN Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus. Displayed outdoors at the 2018 RAF 100 airshow at Cosford, this Whirlwind had the distinction of making the final flight of the type by the RAF - on 1st March 1982 it was the last to land of a formation of Whirlwinds in a flypast at Akrotiri to mark the disbandment of 'B' Flight, 84 Sqdn.

The South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum houses some very rare helicopters, albeit in cramped conditions making photography difficult. Only the ninth Whirlwind to be built by Westland, XA870 first flew in May 1954 and was initially allocated for RN service in the Far East but was found to be unsuitable. It then spent much of its service life in these colours aboard HMS Protector and was notable for the rescue of scientists from Roux Island in Antarctica in 1956. A few days after taking this shot I discovered the wrapper from the 1960s Airfix kit of XA870 during a clear-out, long since forgotten!

XP330 and XP328 setting off on a farewell flight prior to disbandment of the 21 Sqn flight at RAF Benson in January 1976. They were fitted as VIP transports with 5 Britannia seats in the cabin along with carpet and trim/insulation. XP330 was shortly afterwards sent to the Board of Trade Fire School at Stansted and has since moved to Durham/Tees Valley Fire School and just about survives today (Nov 22). XP328 is at North Somercotes in Lincolnshire and is a hulk.

Prince Philip flew the helicopter himself after doing his core business - opening a school. The Rocket sports ground in Darlington was just east of the railway line on Thompson Street East, belonging to the Robert Stephenson and Hawthorns locomotive factory. WV218 built as HO4S-3 BuNo 133746 in 1953, but transferred to Royal Navy under MDAP. Struck off charge in 1960 and broken up at Hal Far, Malta.
