The sixth Sea king remained on standby and was called out twice during the flypast. The Flypast was to celebrate the Squadron’s 76th year.

The Squadron is capable to operating within a 200 nautical mile radius of RNAS 24 hours a day, and carries out more than 200 rescues a year. Their tasks include plucking sailors from sinking ships, airlifting casualties to hospital and assisting police in carrying out aerial searches.

Every year they save many lives in some of the most hazardous conditions imaginable, often putting their own lives at risk. This year marks the Squadron’s last birthday before it hands over its search and rescue duties at the end of the year.
