Today marked the historic decommissioning and final flight of the Lynx helicopter's service for the Royal Navy.

A 6 minute long flying display by 815 Naval Air Squadron of RNAS Yeovilton took place to mark the special occasion.

The Lynx has been a world leader in maritime operations for the last 41 years.

Four decades of operation in locations as diverse as Antarctica, the Far East, the Arabian Gulf and the Caribbean are being brought to a fitting end with the decommissioning.
