Their success and experience will be transferred across to the Wildcat as 815 completes its transition to this new aircraft type. Welcome home 208 Flight – last of the Lynx,” Cdr Richardson said.Flight Commander Lieutenant (Lt) Laura Cambrook landed back home at 815 Naval Air Squadron, Royal Naval Air Station (RNAS) Yeovilton having deployed on 20 June 2017 on HMS Portland.“It’s really great to be back after a very demanding but exhilarating deployment where we achieved 190 hours of flight. It’s been a very successful deployment and poignant too and I will miss the Lynx, she rattles a lot, is small and agile; it’s just a great little helicopter that so many of us love to fly,” Lt Laura Cambrook said.“The Wildcat is going to take over that mantle really well in a much, much more capable aircraft”.The Navy Lynx helicopters are scheduled to conduct a five-hour farewell flypast on March 17, RNAS Yeovilton announced.The flypast will be followed by a formal decommissioning ceremony the following week in Yeovilton before 815 converts into a Wildcat squadron, providing the Lynx’s successor for destroyers and frigates.

Perfect: Senate presents balanced budget

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — The Indiana Senate Republican caucus recently unveiled our budget proposal to fund state government for the next two years.The proposal is balanced with a strong “rainy day” reserves. The budget also continues to support students and teachers with a $775 million increase in K-12 funding.This week, my fellow senators and I defended a balanced budget by voting down $200 million in additional state spending offered in amendments to the state budget by the Democrats, which would have thrown our budget out of balance.Keeping Indiana’s budget balanced means making tough decisions and living within our means, and I’m pleased with the work we put in to protect Hoosier taxpayers.For more information on the Senate Republican budget proposal, click here.last_img read more
