The Royal Navy ordered 56 Sea King HAS Mk.1s on 27 June 1966, with the first production Royal Navy HAS.Mk.1 flying on 7 May 1969. In order for Westland to build the Sea King under licence from Sikorsky, they received four Sikorsky-built SH-3D Sea Kings, which were transported by sea to Avonmouth for Westlands to examine. They reassembled the Sea Kings with this machine being flown as G-ATYU on 11th October 1966, before being given the military serial XV370 shortly after. It served all its life on tests and trials, initially with Westlands at Yeovil, before being transferred to the Empire Test Pilots’ School at Boscombe Down, Wiltshire for helicopter test pilots to train on.
