Crab, I can't believe you are still banging on about Bristow's declaring u/s aircraft. Where is your evidence? It is one of the oldest myths around and gets told again and again by RAF SAR boys many of whom haven't been around long enough to know one end of a SAR job from another. Oh and the bit about weather radar made me laugh - because the Sea King fleet has had a modern, processed radar for years! The weather radar in one of it search modes is just as capable as the Sea Kings and it also gives a weather radar to the pilots directly. When was the last time that the S61 could't find a target or bumped into something? How are the homers these days? You need four hours a day just to sort out two PLBs - disgraceful.
