Sea King Mk4 bids farewell to the Royal Navy with flypast
A Royal Navy helicopter dubbed the "Land Rover of the skies" is making its final flypast.
The Sea King Mk4 has been flying for 36 years with the Commando Helicopter Force, based at RNAS Yeovilton, Somerset.
Five of the aircraft are flying from the base, visiting Portsmouth, Poole, Plymouth, Okehampton, Bristol and Glastonbury.
The fleet will be decommissioned at the end of the month.
On Sunday a 'Junglie' Sea King landed for the final time on the flight deck of HMS Bulwark, which is currently at sea off the Devon coast.
Captain James Parkin said: "The 'Junglie' Sea King has given fantastic service to the British Armed Forces over the last 36 years all over the world, ranging from the Falklands War, through Bosnia and Northern Ireland, and in Iraq and Afghanistan.
"It's been great to see a 'Junglie' Sea King at sea for one final time, and I look forward to the 'Junglie' Merlins becoming just as familiar a sight on our deck in the future."
