THE SEA KING 50TH AN­NIVER­SARY CEL­E­BRA­TIONS: DOC­U­MENT­ING OUR PAST, PRESENT & FU­TURE

Well folks, we had some fun, and we’ve trav­elled back home. Now we’ll be ask­ing your for re­union pho­tos and sto­ries! We're still look­ing for those pho­tos and sto­ries from your col­lec­tions and mem­ory banks. Our book prepa­ra­tions are com­ing along nicely, and we'd like to en­sure we get all the in­put from you that you can send us, through the Sea King 50 web­site, our Face­book group, or even snail mail to the Shear­wa­ter Avi­a­tion Mu­seum. Ev­ery­thing you con­trib­ute will find a per­ma­nent home at the mu­seum af­ter copy­ing and re­turn­ing the orig­i­nals to you. Noth­ing is too big or too small for this one. So send us those sto­ries and pho­tos please, which will form part of the recorded his­tory of this fine air­craft and the good peo­ple who fixed and flew them. So take a good look at this web­site and go to our Face­book group. There are places to de­posit your in­for­ma­tion, ar­ti­cles and sto­ries, anec­dotes and other tales about the Sea Kings. We par­tic­u­larly re­quire sto­ries about what you are do­ing in to­day's Sea King op­er­a­tions. We're star­ing to get a pretty good look at what we used to do with the bird. Lots of laughs and great mem­o­ries, but we need to­day's sto­ries as well. You folks who are fly­ing the he­li­copter to­day have so much to add. This en­tire celebration was is as much about you to­day as it is about the re­tirees who are as­sist­ing the Wing with plan­ning for this event. This is all about a he­li­copter which has made such a tremen­dous con­tri­bu­tion to avi­a­tion in Canada. It pi­o­neered the large he­li­copter-small ship com­bi­na­tion. It has con­trib­uted so much to Canada and else­where around the world, whether it was flood relief on the Prairies, earth­quake relief in Haiti, anti-piracy and anti-drug run­ning op­er­a­tions to­day or dar­ing res­cues at sea. It is quite a story and we want you to be part of it, as we con­tinue to cel­e­brate this won­der­ful he­li­copter's his­tory and on­go­ing con­tri­bu­tions to Canada and Cana­di­ans.
