The Westland WS-61 Sea King helicopter is a British licence-built version of the American Sikorsky S-61 helicopter which first flew during 1969.
This one is operated by RAF Search & Rescue and is the type of helicopter that Prince William flies.

The All-Weather Mersey Class lifeboat ‘Lil Cunningham’ has been based at the boathouse on Lower East Parade, Rhyl since 1992. The RNLI is the charity running the lifeboat service and it relies wholly on public donations in order to provide a 24-7 lifeboat search and rescue service.

The D class lifeboat first introduced into the RNLI fleet in 1963, was designed to be launched quickly and easily so that it could provide a rapid response to a distress call with high-speed transit to the casualty. It is a fully inflatable craft built of a polyester material coated with ‘hypalon’– which is impact and abrasion resistant. The hull is divided into seven compartments so that, should one become punctured, the lifeboat will remain serviceable.
Godfrey and Desmond Nall, two kind-hearted Birmingham brothers had this lifeboat (D632) named in their honour after making a £15,000 donation to the RNLI charity.

    Excellent capture into faves….Mike

  • Thanks Mike, I just took a quick look at your work and given your expertise on the subject your comment is praise indeed, i’ll pop back and have a better look later. This was the first air show I have ever been to and I came back with an awful lot of cloud pictures. Those Tornados move a bit sharpish don’t they?

    Lovely capture :)

  • Thank you Theresa, I was hoping for another shot of all three in alignment but the inflatable started to zoom off ahead as the Chopper caught up so it wasn’t to be.
