Image of the Day: HMS Dragon’s Lynx Fires Infra Red Flares

We bring you the image of the Royal UK Navy HMS Dragon’s Lynx helicopter firing infra red flares during an exercise over the Type 45 destroyer in 2013.


As well as flying her own Lynx helicopter – of 815 Naval Air Squadron based in Yeovilton – Dragon has been flexing muscle as part of joint training with Typhoons from her affiliated 6 Squadron RAF.

Holding various flying exercises with 11 Squadron, based at RAF Conningsby, and Boeing E3-Ds from 8 Squadron based at RAF Waddington, Dragon also exchanged personnel for the RAF to experience life on a ship and vice versa.
