Air Sea Rescue jets are employed by airports, Air Force bases and Space Centres across the globe. They are used in Search and Rescue Operations and mainly do reconnaissance missions while searching for disappeared planes, ships and so on. They are launched from elevated, rectangular buildings.
Thunderbirds (TV Series)Edit
Their first appearance was in Operation Crash-Dive. Seahawks were launched from their base after a mayday call was received by London International Airport from Fireflash 3. However, Fireflash 3 had a malfunction with its Automatic Fixer, causing the crew to report a position that was 50 miles away from its real position. The search for Fireflash 3 was later called off. They next appear in The Impostors, joining the search for International Rescue, and after that in The Cham-Cham, to rescue the crew of an RTL-2 transporter plane that is under attack from enemy fighter jets.
