Royal Danish Super Lynx

A Royal Danish Air Force Super Lynx helicopter will be a welcome addition to the Air Tattoo's rotary 'club' on static display this summer.

The aircraft is used for maritime patrol and search & rescue missions and regularly deploy with ships to Greenland. It will come from Esk 723, based at Karup.

Last year saw a Danish Lynx helicopter deployed to support NATO's counter-piracy operation Ocean Shield off the Horn of Africa.

The Royal Danish Air Force is looking to replace its Lynx fleet with a new maritime helicopter when operations with the current fleet end in 2017. Among the frontrunners are the AgustaWestland AW159 Lynx Wildcat, Eurocopter AS565 and the Sikorsky MH-60R Seahawk.

“It was an epic spectacle, as magical as anything you've ever seen in the West End, and as loud as anything you've ever heard at Knebworth.”

Jeremy Clarkson, Television Presenter

“All the thrills, excitement and noise of a Grand Prix, but in the air!”

Jenson Button, Formula 1 Racing Driver

“This is the best airshow!”

Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11 Astronaut
