Here is a picture of four of the original Lynx pilots who completed their training in 1978.
They were on hand today to see the final cohort of Lynx and Seaking pilots receive their wings:
Today is the last day Lynx and Sea King helicopters will take part in a parade at RNAS Yeovilton.
The Wings parade is a tradition for newly qualified pilots, but soon the helicopters be replaced by Wildcat and Merlin models. The Lynx has been in operation since 1978.
It's been announced the Air Day at Yeovilton will mark 30 years since the Falklands conflict as organisers unveil plans for this years event.
Every squadron based at Yeovilton provided aircraft and personel for the conflict and 12 men were killed.
Aircraft used in the Falklands will be on show.
