Signed and numbered Edition of the Farewell Flight Poster, an Illustrated poster of Search and Rescue Helicopters over St Michael's Mount in Cornwall, presented to senior officers of the Sea King force and Commanding Officer of 771 Squadron at RNAS Culdrose 27.07.2015.
The poster celebrates the farewell flight made by five Sea King helicopters of 771 Search and Rescue Squadron on 21st May 2015 around the coast of West Cornwall. Billed as the 76th Birthday tour for the squadron, the fly past felt to the crews and to the well-wishers around the coast like a last goodbye as the squadron will be de-commissioned in 2016.
771 Squadron is based at RNAS Culdrose and has been since 1974. Memorable events in the life of the squadron include the infamous Fastnet Race of 1979 and the wreck of the MSC Napoli, almost wrecked by Hurricane Kyrill in January 2007.
I am hoping to offer a framed option for this in the near future.
