Dear Friends:

A few short years ago we created this message box on our home page, asking for your help to keep this site up and running. In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running. If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Thank you,

Westland Wessex used in Full Metal Jacket portraying an H-34 Choctaw

The Westland Wessex is a licensed-built variation of the Sikorsky H-34 Choctaw, built by Westland Helicopters for the the British Armed Forces. But a major change was about the engine : instead the piston powerplant, the Wessex relied on a gas turbine : a single Napier Gazelle engine for the first airframes, later builds used a pair of Rolls-Royce Gnome engines. The nose's shape was different of the H-34 and one (or two) noticeable exhaust were visible on the airframe's side.

382 Wessew were built between 1958 and 1970.

This page lists all films that feature a variation of the Westland Wessex.
