I noticed a Merlin flying low in the vicinity of Benson yesterday, carrying something on it's winch...I thought they'd all been transferred to the Navy this time last year. :question:

They have all been passed to the CHF, but perhaps they are appearing at the Benson families day this week

They have all left for Yeovilton and Culdrose, but remain occasional visitors. There is one in every couple of weeks or so, but to no regular schedule a far as I can tell. Monday's was ZJ990 (callsign Junglie411) according to my Mode-S receiver.

It's probably a bit early for any arrivals for Friday's families day. RAF Benson's facebook page shows an outline of what is expected to display https://www.facebook.com/RAFBenson/posts/10154672390641128
