It was great to see the Royal Navy Sea Kings wonderful fly past yesterday on the television. The media were made well aware that the Royal Navy Sea Kings had their last flight yesterday, unfortunately I did not get down to watch it as it toured some of their “estate” all over Scotland. The Royal Navy do things so well and their farewell by three Sea Kings and the wonderful photos of Scotland on an incredible winters day was a great tribute to nearly 40 years of service. It was great that they even published a time-table of where they would fly over from their base in Prestwick to Ben Lomond, Ben Nevis, Glencoe Edinburgh and Stirling. This allowed many to pay tribute to this unique aircraft and it crews and all those who looked after them Thanks to all who organised it made so many people very happy and I bet a few tears were shed.
Well that’s it so many memories and iconic photos from yesterdays farewell what a legacy they have left and what a way for Military SAR to go out, not in a whimper but with heads held high.
Safe flying this winter to all involved in the new SAR contract it is great to see it going well.
