The Royal Navy has said farewell to its "Land Rover of the skies" - the Sea King Mark 4. Today five Junglies - sporting their distinctive green military colours - took a final bow after 36 years faithful service with the Commando Helicopter Force at RNAS Yeovilton in Somerset. They took to the skies of the South West - taking in Portsmouth, Poole, Plymouth, Okehampton, Britsol and Glastonbury - for a farewell flypast. As well being on board one of the military flights ahead of their decommissioning, our cameras were also invited to witness the final deck landing on the Royal Navy's flagship HMS Bulwark.

After five years in Afghanistan the Royal Navy Sea King squadron returned home to RNAS Culdrose in Cornwall. Since May 2009, 854 and 857 NAS, played a role flying Sea King Mk 7 Airborne Surveillance and Control (SKASaC) aircraft for more than 9,000 hours over 2,000 sorties to support troops on the ground as part of 903 Expeditionary Air Wing. The SKASaCs, which were used to locate insurgents’ arms caches, track drugs shipments and follow the movements of insurgents, are now back in the UK and a short video has been produced documenting their involvement by the Army Combat Camera Team.

The Apache; The Apache is the only attack helicopter in service with the British Army. Carrying a mix of weapons including rockets, Hellfire missiles and a 30mm chain gun, the Apache provides a state of the art weapons system at the fore front of military technology. The Lynx; The Lynx is used by both the Army and the Commando Helicopter Force. It is predominantly a battlefield utility helicopter but can be used for both anti-tank and reconnaissance operations The Gazelle; (UPDATE; Now retired from service) The Gazelle has been in service since 1973, it has proved a very reliable observation and reconnaisance helicopter for many years. Although having only one engine it is not as powerful as many others, but its light weight chassis offsets any deficits it might have. Merlin Mk 3; The Merlin Mk 3 is the first of the next generation of medium-support helicopters for the RAF. Highly adaptable, it can carry up to 24 fully-equipped troops, ammunition and stores, and it can also be used for casualty evacuation. The Sea King Mk 4; The Sea King Mk 4 of the Commando Helicopter Force is a troop carrying variant developed by Westlands from the original anti-submarine version. The Sea King can carry 27 fully armed troops and underslung loads. It is well suited to deck operations and has a limited ability to fly in icing conditions. The Chinook; The Chinook is used by the RAF primarily for trooping and load carrying, both internal and underslung, and can carry up to 54 troops or 10 tonnes of freight. The cabin is large enough to accommodate 2 Land Rovers, while the 3 underslung load hooks allow flexibility in the type and number of loads that can be carried.

We were treated to a very special visit by one of the Royal Navy's Sea King helicopters which landed on our playing fields early on Friday morning, 17 June 2016. Pupils were given an opportunity to visit the cockpit and see inside. We were also pleased to have some young navy officers tell us about how much they are enjoying life since they enrolled. The Royal Navy are now assisting with apprenticeships in many areas and offer a very appealing starting salary. Thank you for choosing to visit our school.

Uk Royal Marines will modernized Mk4 Merlin helicopters Pale grey is the new green. This is the very first of the Royal Marines new steeds to drop in on its future home. This is a second-generation battlefield Merlin, factory model MLSP 1, tail number ZJ122, making a brief debut at Yeovilton. It went into the factory at nearby Leonardo (previously Agusta-Westland) in Yeovil as a khaki green Merlin Mk3 and it emerged as a maritime grey Merlin Mk4 complete with folding tail, folding rotor head, floatation devices, fast-roping points, enhanced radio and comms equipment and an improved undercarriage (plus lashing points) – modifications all designed so it can operate at sea. The Commando Helicopter Force (CHF) acquired two squadrons of battlefield Merlins from the RAF to replace their veteran Sea Kings. First of Uk Royal Marines’ modernized Mk4 Merlin helicopters recently visited its future home at Yeovilton air base for refuelling. The second-generation battlefield Merlin, factory model MLSP 1, tail number ZJ122, made the debut as the air station prepared for its annual air day Saturday, The Royal Navy announced. The helicopter was originally a khaki green Merlin Mk3 modified by Leonardo (previously Agusta-Westland) in Yeovil for operations at sea. Modifications include a folding tail, folding rotor head, floatation devices, fast-roping points, enhanced radio and comms equipment and an improved undercarriage (plus lashing points), the statement added Wednesday. The Commando Helicopter Force (CHF) acquired two squadrons of battlefield Merlins from the RAF to replace their veteran Sea Kings. The advanced Merlin helicopters are equipped with a ramp to load/offload 16 commandos in full battle rig. The aircraft were almost exclusively designed for operating over land. Further the helicopters are capable to fold the tail section – it’s been completely rebuilt for the Mk4 – and the rotor heads which assist flying from Royal Navy carriers in particular. The first of 25 Mk4s will be handed over to CHF in January, with transition to the new machine completed by the end of 2020. Source : https://goo.gl/9ut5tg

The Final Flight for Two Royal Navy Aircraft On June 1st 2017, I was invited into RNAS Culdrose to witness the final flight of a Royal Navy Jetstream Turbo Prop aircraft and Sea King Helicopter. The two retired airframes were to be given a new training aid purpose at Predannack airfield a satellite station of RNAS Culdrose. The method of transporting these two aircraft was to be as underslung loads attached to an RAF Chinook from RAF Odiham under the supervision of a JADTEU team from RAF Brize Norton (Joint Air Delivery Transport and Evaluation Unit) The JADTEU team prepared both aircraft for lifting, the Jetstream Turboprop had a rigorous structural survey and C of G (centre of gravity) adjustment with sandbags. The wings were also reduced in size and additional netting was added to ensure the remaining wings would lose their lift characteristics during the flight. The Sea King having already been stripped of rotor blades etc, was easier to prepare a sling and lifting equipment were attached. With both aircraft readied they would be moved to the compass base at W site at RNAS Culdrose for lifting via Chinook to Predannack under the supervision of the JADTEU team. Both aircraft were flown by the Chinook over the Lizard Peninsula to Predannack with the Jetstream going first followed by the Sea King. Both flight were completed successfully and both aircraft are now at their final resting place. At Predanack the retired airframes will be used as training aids by the Royal Navy School of Flight Deck Operations. Training will involve crash/fire crew rescue and salvage scenarios ultilising both retired airframes, so they will still see plenty of action in their new role under the Royal Navy. A bit about the airframes: The Jetstream is a former aircraft of 750 squadron ZA111 used for ab-nito Observer training. ZA111 was in service between 1982- 2011 after which it retired, eventually all Jetstreams were replaced by Beechcraft 300 Avenger T1 Aircraft Sea King XV371 was originally delivered to the Royal Navy as a Sea King HAS MK1 trials airframe in 1970. Following this the airframe moved to HMS Sultan Air Engineering School as an instructional airframe. Then in 2008 XV371 transferred to RNAS Culdrose, here it was used as a pattern aircraft by Westlands, for a British Sea King Variant. Following this the airframe was utilised at RNAS Culdrose by the School of Flight Deck Operations.

During an operational demonstration Indian marine commandos slip down by Indian Navy's Sea-link 42 helicopter at International Fleet Review in Visakhapatanm, Andhra Pradesh. A Naval Fleet Review is a long-standing tradition followed by navies all over the world. It is a grand occasion when every operational ship is spruced up, proudly displaying its crest and its company in a spirit of loyalty and allegiance to its sovereign and the state. The idea of a Review was perhaps conceived as a show of naval might or an inspection of readiness for battle at sea. It still has the same connotation, but assembling of warships without any belligerent intentions is now the norm in modern times. Later reviews were used as a celebratory demonstration for victories in battle, for a coronation or on the occasion of the visit of royal guests. On many occasions, ships have sailed across the seas to participate in fleet reviews of friendly nations. While India boasts of a maritime tradition dating back to Vedic times, we do not have any authentic reports of fleet reviews of the past except for a mention of two influential women demanding a fleet review during the supremacy of the Marathas.

Paramedics treat the victim on the rocks but the tide is approaching. The helicopter takes off and winches up a crew member then winches up a second crew member along with a spinning stretcher for the trip to hospital.
