WESSEX 5

Owned and operated by Andrew Whitehouse

Two Wessex V helicopters, XT761 and XT771 joined the Navy Wings associate aircraft collection and are already attracting a great following among the rotary wing community. Purchased from the Royal Navy earlier this year by longstanding Navy Wings supporter, Andrew Whitehouse, the two aircraft form the Navy Wessex Restoration project based at Crewkerne in Somerset. For the first time since 6th November 1986, XT761 (G-WSEX) recently took to the air. This is the only flying Westland Wessex MK 5 in the world.
