Walking the dog on Ryde beach this morning (it was a cracking weather) I was a bit puzzled at seeing what seemed to be a Sea King with day-glo patches fore and aft hovering over a Wightlink car ferry. It then ambled off and hovered over a merchant ship anchored off St Helens, before flying off in the direction of Portsmouth. I tried to take pix with phone, but much too far away.
But checking on the web, I found this:
Its a nightmare getting a ex military aircraft onto a civvy register, we tried here with an old RAF Herc!!!Yes. XV666 (Damian naturally ). Being flown under a military style AOC to train German SAR pilots. And based out of Portland. Mainly ex RN guys working there. Taken a lot to get it up and running. Hopefully they’ll get a second cab soon.
