The Arrival of Westland Sea King Helicopter HAR3

In the latest of a regular series of video blogs that look at the changes taking place at our London site as part of the Museum's RAF Centenary 2018 Transformation Programme, we interview Head of Collections Ian Thirsk and ask him why the arrival of Westland Sea King HAR3 is such an important edition to the Museum's collection.


Sea King Helicopter HAR3 will be telling an important part of RAF's story in London's Hangar 1, which will open to the public summer 2018. It was one of the RAF's last dedicated Search and Rescue helicopters, retiring from active service in 2016.

We will be posting more video blogs talking about what is happening at our London site over the next few weeks, so keep visiting this section of our website.
