WATCH: Final Sea King leaves RAF Boulmer

The second and last yellow Sea King helicopter has left RAF Boulmer for the final time.

The R131 took off from the Northumberland base at around 11am, following the departure of the first helicopter, the R132, at around 9.45am. Crowds of people watched both aircraft leave the camp.

It essentially marks the disbandment of 202 Squadron and the end of the search and rescue service being based in the county.

Yesterday evening, a fleet of light aircraft from Eshott airfield took part in a flypast over the base.

Last Saturday, people were able to say goodbye to the Sea King helicopters, when one of them flew over Alnwick during an emotional farewell flypast.
