Royal Canadian Air Force CH-124 Sea King CH12417 has taken on a special 1960s-style livery to mark 55 years of RCN and RCAF operations before the type retires. The paintwork was applied by a team from the 443 Maritime Helicopter Squadron, at 12 Wing, Shearwater, Nova Scotia, who also repainted CH12401 in preparation for induction into the Shearwater Aviation Museum.

Post-retirement, it’s expected that CH12417 will remain with 443 Squadron as a ‘gate guardian’. It will also be present at Sea King retirement festivities planned in Victoria from 30 November to 1 December.
