Wildcat Prepares for Take-off 660One of the Royal Navy’s new Wildcat helicopters flew several sorties over St Helena during commemorations for the 200th anniversary of Napoleon’s arrival on the island in 1815.

On Wednesday 14 October 2015, it became the first helicopter to land at the islands airport – nearly a month after the arrival of the first aircraft ever to land.

The attack helicopter has deployed with HMS Lancaster, which visited the island along with the RFA Gold Rover for the commemorations.
