On Monday 11th April, Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose waved goodbye to its iconic Search and Rescue Sea King helicopters for the last time.
During the late morning, the final three aircraft flew from the Helston base to HMS Sultan.
The much-loved red and grey aircraft have flown from RNAS Culdrose since 1988.
Brave aviators have used them every day to save thousands of lives in some of the most hazardous conditions imaginable.
