Westland Lynx-Black Cats-Duxford Oct 2010 Cat Black Breeds
Image by Feggy Art The Black Cats are the Royal Navy’s helicopter display team. The team is composed of two Westland Lynx anti-submarine and anti-shipping helicopters, with the aircraft and crews drawn from No No. 702 Naval Air Squadron based at RNAS Yeovilton in Somerset. The team performs at air shows and other public events around the UK and Europe. They perform a display which mixes close formation, opposition and synchronised manoeuvres. The Black Cats were formed in 2001. For their first three display seasons, the team was known as the ‘Lynx Pair’ – the "Black Cats" title was applied in 2004. The team’s predecessors as the Royal Navy Helicopter Display Team were "The Sharks", who used four red Aérospatiale Gazelle helicopters and disbanded in 1992. The team won the Steadman Sword for the best British participant at the Royal International Air Tattoo in 2003 and as "Les Chats Noir" performed at the French Navy’s 30th Anniversary of operating the Lynx at Lanveoc in Brittany. ————————————————————————————————————- The Westland Lynx is a British multi-purpose military helicopter designed and built by Westland Helicopters at its factory in Yeovil. Originally intended as a utility craft for both civil and naval usage, military interest led to the development of both battlefield and naval variants, which went into operational usage in 1977 and were later adopted by the armed forces of over a dozen nations, where it primarily serves in the battlefield utility, anti-armour, search and rescue and anti-submarine warfare roles. In 1986 a specially modified Lynx broke Fédération Aéronautique Internationale’s official airspeed record for helicopters, which it still holds. The helicopter is now produced and marketed by Agusta Westland.
