On 14th January 2016, there was to be a formation flight by Royal Navy Sea King helicopters from HMS Gannet in Ayrshire to mark their farewell from search and rescue operations. They were due to fly over Edinburgh and then route back towards Ayrshire.
Since I wasn’t in Edinburgh that day, I’d hoped they might fly along the line of the Pentlands and I might get a couple of shots on a long lens since it was a brilliant sunny day with snow. Sadly they routed more to the north, so no sighting. I did some pics while waiting, as seen below. West Linton just visible in the top pic with a snowy Black Mount near Dolphinton behind.
