Army Lynx Farewell Flypast today
Image
There's another Lynx farewell flypast happening across southern England this morning, this time by the Army. The tour is starting at 08:45 GMT and is due to reach London at 15:50 GMT.
Last year, the Royal Navy had their own version.

Far too early, and far too little left.

I wonder if they did something similar with the Merlin?

Confused Merlin HM1 must have had some deck trials either on a similar contraption or on an actual ship surly.

On a ship I would have thought. The rig for a Merlin sized helo would be massive.
