When I first came live in Warton in 1964 the first aircraft I saw was not a jet but a Search & Rescue Wessex
Helicopter it was based at Warton and flew when BAC test aircraft were airborn the Pilot was Fred Ritchie.
Over the years many types of helicopters have flown into Warton. here are a few you tube videos to peruse. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMSlgJtv ... re=related
From time to time and in connection with Naval Exercises off the Morecambe Bay oil/gas rigs we have a variety
of helos refuelling at Warton, Chinooks, Seakings, ASACS, Lynx's, Augusta 109s, Dauphines.
