Culdrose SAR to Man Their Sea King at National Maritime Museum in Falmouth
Aircrew from the Culdrose based Search and Rescue (SAR) 771 Naval Air Squadron will be manning their Sea King Mk 5 at the blockbuster SAR Exhibition in the National Maritime Museum, Falmouth during early August.
Another two days of frantic activity awaits the aircrew from 771 Naval Air Squadron when they attend the blockbuster Search and Rescue exhibition at the National Maritime Museum on Mondays 6th and 13th August from 11:30am. With a breadth of knowledge, experience and stories to tell, the Pilots, Observers and Aircrewman will be able to inform the thousands of expected visitors of their individual and crew roles within the aircraft, answer the hundreds of questions about what each button and switches does, and relate their own personal SAR tales. Again, led by the Commanding Officer of 771 Naval Air Squadron, Lt Cdr Martin Shepherd who said “I am delighted to continue this excellent working relationship with the team at the National Maritime Museum and provide a ‘hands on’ opportunity to welcome visitors to this exciting Search & Rescue exhibition.”
Throughout the day from 11:30am until 3:30pm or until the Museum shut at 5pm, the aircrew from 771 Naval Air Squadron will be manning the display and are eagerly awaiting to interact and inform each and every visitor to this wonderful exhibition. With over 2,325 visitors attending the previous occasion at Easter they are high expectations that with summer now in full flow in Cornwall, that this number will be exceeded yet again.
Never daunted, 771 Squadron aircrew and engineers will continue to repeat this unique opportunity to describe their role, answer questions and meet the public. Look out for our further attendance at the National Maritime Museum, Falmouth later in the year.
