Responsible for training the Royal Navy's future observers, 750 Naval Air Squadron at Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose doesn't stop for summer leave.

This month marks the 50th anniversary of 845 Naval Air Squadron. Better known as the "Junglies" for their work in Borneo, the Squadron also counts the Falklands War among its battle honours. Veterans of that conflict held a reunion at RNAS Yeovilton on Tuesday, to catch up with old friends, and swap stories.

The Royal Navy claims to have become the longest-serving air unit in Operation Herrick, Britain's military effort in Afghanistan. By rights, the sailors of 854 Naval Air Squadron should now be back home at their base in Culdrose, Cornwall. Instead they are still working 12-hour watches maintaining and flying the Sea King surveillance helicopters. The aircraft have proved vital in using maritime-designed radar to track insurgents across the sands of Helmand. Because their replacements from 857 NAS were delayed flying missions in Libya, their current tour has had to be extended by fifty per cent beyond the normal three-month aviation duty. Instead of being home for Christmas it will be early 2012 before they see family and friends again. Avionics supervisor, Petty Officer Jacqueline Nourse t...

HMS Queen Elizabeth sailed recently for the first phase of trials that will ultimately see the carrier declared safe to fly Chinook, Merlin, Wildcat and Apache attack helicopters in addition to F-35 jets later in the year. The aim of the trials say the Royal Navy is to ‘work out the conditions that the aircraft can operate in while at sea on the carrier’. They will collect data about the landings, take-offs and manoeuvres in different wind and sea conditions, before processing the information and ultimately declaring that the ship can safely operate the aircraft. Until yesterday, 820 Squadron’s aircraft, equipment and personnel have been based ashore and simply flown on and off the ship according to the Royal Navy who say: “Today marks the first time that any Squadron will embark the sh...
