Royal Air Force Westland Whirlwind HAR10 search and rescue and HC10 tactical transport helicopters

In the 1960's the Westland Whirlwind HAR10 and HC10 helicopters formed the backbone of the RAF search and Rescue and tactical transport helicopter force. The Westland Whirlwind offered improved performance and reliability over the piston engined helicopters it replaced. It had a new turboshaft engine which was lighter and gave more performance. In 1961 some of the old Whirlwind HAR2 and HAR2 piston engined helicopters were re-engined with the new turboshaft engine but sixty eight new air sea rescue HAR-10 and troop transport HC-10s were produced.No.225 Squadron RAF transport command were the first unit to deploy Westland Whirlwind HAR10s. Westland Whirlwind helicopters were used by the RAF in the Far east, the Mediterranean and Europe. The design was so successful that these jet engined Westland Whirlwinds were in service for 21 years.
