Project 677 started back in 2006 when XV677 was released from HMS Sultan for disposal. At the time, 677 was the first and only Sea King to be privately owned. Some 7 years on and times have changed, several Sea King's are now on display in various locations keeping the venerable Sea King alive for future generations to admire.


The initial idea behind the project was to restore 677's cockpit area but leave the vast rear cabin empty to create an internal display but once we started the ball rolling help poured in and we soon realised that an almost complete restoration was going to be our goal.

As the restoration progressed, 677 soon turned from an empty hulk to something looking like a patchwork quilt but all Sea King. We've had help from so many people it would take too long to mention them all, so can I on behalf of all the Project 677 team, express my sincere thanks to one and all. Without the support of many new friends 677 would not be how she is today, the photograph on the home page tells the story far better than I can.
