Photo Comment

A Sikorsky S-61A, once designated in Royal Canadian Air Force service as CHSS-2 pre 1970, and post 1970 as CH-124A, is seen here parked at Minhad (UAE). The Sea King belonged to HS 406 as can be seen by the large badge on the front end of the engine bay. The squadron sports a jumping Lynx in its badge and has the motto "We kill by Night". The whole mighty Sea King fleet of the RCAF were eventually phased out in December 2018. The current (2019) whereabouts of this 406 is not known.
