Great Update, nice to see an ASAC7 in the Commando Assault. Also interesting to see that the Black Cats have yet to confirm their type.

Think the type confirmation for the 'Black Cats' may be a 'typo' as it will be a Lynx MK8 and a Wildcat. :D

Not really a typo. Just being courteous to the Black Cats who are yet to announce details of their season officially. :)

The Sea King Out Of Service Date i Believe is June 2016, So as Long as Work being carried out on the Runway Next Year doesn't Prevent Air Day Taking Place in 2015 then You Should see the Sea king Taking its Bow Next Year.

Sea King OOSD is 31st March 2016.
Yes, if the RWY repairs don't clash, next year should be the last appearance of the 'King' at VL Air Day. :'(

Will be Sad to see the King go, but also Good to see a Row of Merlin's In the Assault.
