Sea King helicopters leave RNAS Yeovilton for final flypast

Sea King Mk4 helicopters based at RNAS Yeovilton, Somerset have left for a final flypast before being decommissioned.

The helicopters, dubbed the "Land Rover of the skies", have been flying for 36 years with the Commando Helicopter Force.

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

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