More info

Oscar Charlie is the Sikorsky S-6IN Search and Rescue helicopter that was operated by Bristow Helicopters from Sumburgh in Shetland, under their contract with HM Coastguard to provide search and rescue coverage of the area.

Oscar Charle was the first dedicated Search and Rescue helicopter fitted with specialist equipment required for the role.

Since she arrived in Shetland in January 1985, Oscar Charlie has assisted in thousands of rescues and incidents. In many of these her work was relatively simple but at the other end of the scale she has assisted in internationally co-ordinated rescues such as 1988's Piper Alpha incident.

In 2007 Oscar Charlie was released from duty after over 23 years of continuous service.
