Limited Edition of 615 Models Worldwide

This particular RAF Wessex HC.2 (XV721/H) entered service with No. 72 Squadron in 1968 and appears to have spent its entire service career with the same unit. A regular exhibit at Airshows around the UK from 1999 to 2001, the aircraft features a specially marked door to commemorate No. 72 Squadron’s long association with the Wessex HC.2 – ‘35 years of service’. The Wessex helicopters of No. 72 Squadron also hold two further impressive records from their distinguished service career. Serving with the security forces in Northern Ireland as part of Operation Banner the Wessex holds the record for the longest operational deployment of any RAF Squadron, from 1969 until 2002. Also, at one time, No. 72 Squadron was the largest in the RAF, with no fewer than 25 Wessex, 4 Puma and 2 Chinook helicopters on strength. Upon its retirement from RAF Service, Westland Wessex HC.2 XV721 was sold to the National Navy of Uruguay.

The Corgi Aviation Archive features a wide selection of high quality, ready-made, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted with meticulous attention to detail, using specifications of the original aircraft. Corgi models are built with diecast metal and some plastic components.
