If you're in the hood...

Sea King Mk4 bids farewell to the Royal Navy with flypast.

A Royal Navy helicopter dubbed the "Land Rover of the skies" will make its final flypast later. The Sea King Mk4 has been flying for 36 years with the Commando Helicopter Force, based at RNAS Yeovilton, Somerset.

Five of the aircraft will fly from the base, visiting Portsmouth, Poole, Plymouth, Okehampton, Bristol and Glastonbury.

The fleet will be decommissioned at the end of the month.

Re: If you're in the hood...

at least they will not whiz past so a photo is basically impossible.

Of all the planes in the world, the one I would love see close up is USA air force 1. Don't care which one as long as Air Force 1 is on the side lol. There's a photo from a street in Cuba of air force 1 passing over to land. I thought that was a special photo and special point in time

Here's one taken earlier... much, much earlier.

Borneo in the 60's... one of the 'original junglies'
