My dad had the same fleet of Sea Kings as I have served with. We have a series of photos with the first one being my dad as a young SLT standing beside the SK on his ship, then one of me as a newly minted SLT beside the same SK on my ship and one of my daughter as a newly minted A/SLT standing beside the same SK on her ship. The time span is about 46 years...lol We say the SK is 100,000 nuts and bolts flying in loose formation and if it bounces, log two landings.
Avionics is what we're missing in our Navy. RCAF takes care of all our air assets. Up here, a rating is your rank, trade is what you do. Leftover terminology from the RN. We've just got out Royal designation back after being absent for 45 years. I'm heading into my 27th year in the Navy. Finally, I'm going to be in long enough to see a new helicopter coming in...lol It's time to retire the Seakings after 48 years, looking forward to the new CH-148 Cyclones finishing their trials and getting on board.
