Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

couldn't find any non-dutch spoken reports

a Seaking from SAR at Koksijde (Belgium) rescued six youngsters in Langdon Bay near the white cliffs of Dover.

The demand came from schottish RAF base of Kinloss. The Belgian Seaking departed from Koksijde at 18.09hr and arrived at 18.40hr (Belgian time).

The Seaking flew twice, first 2 and then 4, were transported safely to a helipad from the British coastguard.

19.10hr Belgian time the rescue mission was over and the Seaking got back home at 19.42hr.

Since 1961 40th squadron performed over 2500 missions, 1500 confirmed lives were saved, 80% of them were saved and rescued from the water.

An impressive record, well done!
