‘UK first’ aerial display as 22 Squadron bid North Devon goodbye

There was a dramatic send off for Chivenor's search and rescue personnel last night (Thursday).

The farewell dinner held for 22 Squadron included a stunning firework display.

It was thought to be the first ever UK night time acrobatic display by aircraft while shooting fireworks from the planes as they passed to within three metres of each other.

These pictures are by Conrad Lees, who was there to capture the action.
