Our reporter Seth Conway is spending the day with Search and Rescue helicopters in Chivenor and has some breaking news.
The RAF Sea Kings from twenty two Squadron were due to stop running today but ITV has learned they'll continue to operate for another week before the service is handed over to a private company.
It's a slight reprieve but it's still a sad moment for the community.
More on ITV West Country tonight at 6pm.
Statement Chivenor will continue to provide full helicopter search and rescue capability for a further period of around one week at the request of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency who asked for this continuance.
The option to provide a continuance of service has been part of the UK SAR Transition Planning programme for all of the 6 RAF SAR flights in the UK and this request will neither affect the level of SAR service across the region served by Chivenor, nor in any impede the future careers of RAF personnel serving at Chivenor.

Virgin Media customers have taken to Twitter to complain about a breakdown in the company's Broadband and TV service this evening.
The children and I have just had an actual conversation. It was quite nice. Thanks @virginmedia for going off across Plymouth
So @virginmedia has gone down across Plymouth & Exeter. Reading the irrational angry tweets is far more interesting than watching TV anyway!
Virgin Media has been replying to customers saying that it was aware of the fault, which it says has now been fixed and the service is slowly getting back to normal.
Some customers have been told not to expect normal service to resume until just before midnight.
@teppotastic Hi, We have had reports the issue is now fixed, Can you try a reboot and see how that goes. ^GT
