ZH858 departs (with ZH836) after a brief visit to RAF Valley. The Merlin HM.1 was the first helicopter designed and manufactured as a fully integrated weapons system; the development contract (H21a/08) spanned nearly a decade during which much of the technology became obsolescent and had to be replaced before the helicopter entered service. Unlike the Mk.3 transport variant, the HM.1 was delivered to the Royal Navy under a prime contract with Lockheed Martin. (400D, Sigma 80-400 & fluid-head tripod)
