A team from Culdrose Air Base has been sent to help victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. They'll be giving aid using a Merlin MK 1 helicopter that's usually based near Helston.
The crew have been deployed since June, and now won't return till after Christmas.
They were taking part in counter-piracy operations before the Prime Minister sent them to help.
