  • Airfix A55307 Westland Sea King Har.3 Military Plastic Model Kit Gift Set (1:72 Scale)

    Held in extremely high regard by the British public, the distinctive yellow Search and Rescue Sea King HAR.3 helicopters of the Royal Air Force always seemed to be on hand when help was needed most. Many sailors, climbers and holidaymakers owe their lives to the highly capable SAR crews of the RAF, who were ready to save lives at any time of day, or night and in all weather conditions. As the final RAF Search and Rescue Sea Kings are finally withdrawn from service, many people will be left with fond memories of these high profile helicopters of mercy. Often the star of many a high profile news report, the Sea Kings were always seen helping people who found themselves in difficult situations, which in many cases could actually be life threatening. The sight of a bright yellow Sea King always served to reassure the public and even when conducting general patrol sorties over Britain's beaches, the crew would always be certain of receiving some affectionate waves from the holidaymakers below.

  • WarbirdShirts Men's Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King Short Sleeve T-Shirt Adult 2XL

    This shirt from the WarbirdShirtsTM collection features the Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King. Developed by Sikorsky Aircraft in the late 1950s to counter the Soviet submarine threat, the SH-3 was also the world's first amphibious helicopter. Sea Kings began service in the US Navy in 1961 and performed numerous search and rescue operations during the Vietnam War; they also retrieved spacecraft from the ocean during the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs. Although now retired from the Navy, a Marine Corps Sea King remains the US presidential transport helicopter to this day, with the call sign "Marine One" when the President is aboard.

But they find a special joy in their work that can never be matched by the easier world of the landsman. No matter how great the hardship or how bad the storm, the highliners put out to sea in their primitive battle against the elements.The protagonist of the novel is Hank Crawford, a young greenhorn who first comes to Alaska to work in a cannery to earn money while on summer vacation from college. He is quickly hooked by the fisherman’s life, and this novel re-creates how a young man becomes a highliner. He succeeds because he is young enough, strong enough, and brave enough. He learns the brutal business from hard-fisted skippers, penny-pinching cannery managers, and the pirates of the fishing world. Hank also meets the tough women who endure the hardships of Alaska alongside their men.Journey with him as he learns to survive the elements (100-mile-an-hour winds, ice storms, tidal waves, and fire at sea) and attempts to become a high...
