National Maritime Museum Cornwall to exhibit Sea King helicopter

A museum in Falmouth is preparing to open one of the most ambitious exhibitions in its history at the end of the month.

The National Maritime Museum Cornwall is looking at putting a specially painted Sea King helicopter, loaned by the MOD, as part of their new Search and Rescue exhibition, forming a spectacular centre piece in the display. Visitors will be allowed to climb inside and investigate the giant chopper, whilst listening to accounts from the crew and from those who have been rescued.

Opening on March 16, the exhibition will celebrate the work of the RLNI, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force, HM Coastguard and other organisations. It will also trace the evolution of rescue equipment and present extraordinary stories of the brave men and woman who help protect us from the unpredictable Cornwall coasts.

It represents an educational, highly intriguing opportunity for anybody staying in some 5 star accommodation in Cornwall this year, and a great addition to your British holidays.
