Search and rescue helicopters, including Sea Kings operating out of RAF Boulmer in Northumberland, are set to be replaced by a new fleet operated by an American company.
Under the new contract operations will end at RAF Boulmer and 22 new state-of-the-art helicopters will operate from 10 locations around the UK.
Bristow, the American company who won the contract, say that the new fleet will be more advanced than the Sea King.
However, the MP for Berwick - Sir Alan Beith - told ITV News that the move will be sad for the community.
