One of five Belgian Sea Kings Mk.48 from 40th Escadrille (squadron) based at Koksijde. The most remarkable intervention of the Seakings took place after the disaster with the "Herald of Free Enterprise" before the coast of Zeebrugge on March 6th, 1987. Three Seakings of 40 Squadron were able to rescue 30 passengers from a certain death. This RS-03 was in 2006 first noted with special marking "30 Years Sea King" on the tail.
