Lynx restoration

I had a very exciting visit from a chap based at RNAS Yeovilton this week. He has offered to take away our Navy Lynx prototype (the blue one in this picture) to restore and display at the 40th anniversary of Lynx celebrations. What this picture doesn't reveal is that it is missing it's tail, amongst many other things (like engines!). Arrangements to make now...

New background pic!

I hope you enjoy the new background picture - it's the cockpit of our Mil-8 taken shortly after its arrival in 2010.
