Farewell to the Lynx

Two posts in one day, could this be the end of the world as we know it?

The Lynx Helicopter goes out of service on the 31st of this month after 41 years and was a regular feature on Portland back in the days when we had the air station and dockyard. Today was the chance to say goodbye to an old friend as 4 of them did a flypast over Portland, the last one dipping in salute as it went over the Cenotaph.

This year we will also lose the Search & Rescue helicopter from Portland. A bad decision that would probably see me charged with libel if I said what I really feel.
