Seaking Belgium Aircomponent

The Belgium Aircomponent has 5 of these Westland Seakings Mk48 in service. They use them for Search and Rescue activities. There base ins in Koksijde near the Belgium coastline.
They played a major part in a TV-series about the 40 Sqn Koksijde.
The Seaking however are aging, and the Belgium government is looking for a replacement. They are going to order the new NH-90 to replace these Seakings.
