SH-60B Seahawk

The SH-60B was the first version of the Seahawk to enter service, becoming operational in 1983.  The Seahawk is a versatile platform employed at sea in the antisubmarine and anti-ship roles, and used extensively for search and rescue, drug interdiction, cargo lift and insertion of Special Operations Forces into hostile landing zones.  During its service, the helicopter on display logged 8,785 flight hours and more than 28,000 landings, its last one on the occasion of its transfer to the museum in 2009.
