The HH-3F Pelican is a member of the Sikorsky S-61R family, which are twin engine helicopters used in transport or search and rescue roles. The Sikorsky S-61R was developed as a derivative of their S-61/SH-3 Sea King model. It features a substantially revised fuselage with a rear loading ramp, a conventional though water tight hull instead of the S-61's boat-hull, and retractable tricycle landing gear.
This specific model is the HH-3F Sea King (more commonly known by its nickname ''Pelican'') and is used by the United States Coast Guard for all weather air sea rescue. The Pelican featured a search radar with a nose antenna radome offset to port,and water landing capability.
This handcrafted model is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail and makes a great gift for any veteran, aviation enthusiast or history buff.
