The Westland Whirlwind is a License built Sikorsky S-55. This example was originally a Whirlwind HAR.2, but upgraded between 1962/1964 to a HAR.10 serving the RAF although Whirlwinds served the UK Navy as well. Before being retired from Military use in the 1980s this classic was modified for VIP use. Now owned by the National Warplane Museum in USA.
