Please excuse my naivety but, if you could find an airworthy example, would it be outside the realms of possibility to keep it that way?

I'm thinking charitable donations (a la XH558) to pay for the running costs and I imagine that there might be sufficient ex-Sea King crews and engineers willing to donate their time and experience.

I appreciate that a Sea King doesn't have quite the same allure as a Vulcan but surely it would be welcomed on the airshow circuit?
