      Out of stock
     
  Sikorsky HH-60J Jayhawk of the US Coast Guard, currently based at Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA. Excellent limited edition model of 3,400 pieces with opening side door and detachable rotor blades. Box has a few minor abrasions but otherwise ok.

Sikorsky's HH-60J helicopter provides the U.S. Coast Guard with a rugged and reliable multi-role platform from which to perform its wide variety of missions, including search and rescue (SAR), offshore law enforcement, drug interdiction and environmental protection.

The Jayhawk is a multi-mission, twin-engine, medium-range helicopter operated by the United States Coast Guard for search and rescue, law enforcement, military readiness and marine environmental protection missions. Originally designated HH-60J before being upgraded and redesignated beginning in 2007, the MH-60T is designed to fly a crew of four up to 300 mi (483 km) offshore, hoist up to 6 additional people on board while remaining on-scene for up to 45 minutes and return to base while maintaining an adequate fuel reserve. Normal cruising speed of the MH-60T is 135 to 140 kn (155 to 161 mph) and the aircraft is capable of reaching 180 kn (207 mph) for short durations. The MH-60T can fly at 140 kn (161 mph) for six to seven hours.

Chosen to replace the HH-3F Pelican, the MH-60T is a member of the Sikorsky S-70 family of helicopters and is based on the United States Navy's SH-60 Seahawk helicopter. Development began in September 1986, first flight was achieved on 8 August 1989, and the first HH-60J entered USCG service in June 1990. Production ended in 1996 after 42 helicopters were produced; three retired SH-60F Seahawks were also remanufactured to MH-60T specifications beginning in 2010. A total of 42 MH-60Ts are in service with the Coast Guard
