RAF to leave Leconfield 2015

Looks like with Bristows winning the SAR contract from 2015, their operations will move to Humberside Airport where they currently have an operating base serving the offshore industry.

Are there any events lined up for 2014, to commemorate the RAF at Leconfield.
Surely Two major features of Leconfield these being the RAF search and rescue with their Sea King Helicopter.
And the RAF presence themselves cannot just fade into the background. It has to be worthy of some sort of spectacular finale after serving the country for many, many years.

Looks like the end is nigh for military aviation at Leconfied (and East Yorkshire in fact), so what will the future hold for the relatively new build SAR hangar at Leconfield?
