Retractable in Sea King? I thought Sea King wheels are non retractable?
U mean suspension is it?

That is interesting... could it be there are different variations of Sea King?

EDIT: I think u all are right.. the frontal wheels are retractable. Those photos showing the wheels are down could be the pilot just don't feel like retracting the wheels when the photo was taken

If memory serves me right, in the UK, the Sea King without retracting undercarriage was called a Commando and built under license by Westlands.
