An iconic helicopter will embark on its final flight next week.

The Army Lynx will fly over the South West on Tuesday with Weston Helicopter Museum one of its destinations.

The helicopter has been used extensively by the British Army for the past 40 years after first entering service in 1978.

During the past four decades it has been used to destroy tanks, evacuate wounded soldiers and provide humanitarian support.

The museum in Locking Moor Road, which owns four Lynx helicopters, will be open to allow visitors the chance to watch the flyover from the airfield’s original taxiway.

World speed record holder G-Lynx is also based at the museum.

For more information and arrival times, contact the museum on helimuseum@btconnect.com or 01934 635227.
