Only if you wish to leave a tip, the 1.7Bn will cover the rest.

Big news down here (12m from Culdrose). The general feeling locally is that its a good thing. The Navy have promised no loss of numbers at Culdrose. The new SAR choppers will be based at Newquay airport which helps with it's viability. The new Sikorskys will be superior to the outgoing Seakings etc. The crews, no doubt will be ex Navy/RAF.

As Willk has mentioned, there will be concerns over hatches falling off.

The larger of the choppers is the S92, its like a flying mini bus.

The contract is through Bristows in Aberdeen, not the US.

As far as I'm aware all the pilots that fly choppers out of Aberdeen are ex MOD anyway?
