HMS Bulwark during operations in the Mediterranean Sea to rescue migrants in danger.  The role of the Landing Platform Dock ships, HMS Bulwark and HMS Albion, is to deliver the punch of the Royal Marines ashore by air and by sea, with boats from the landing dock in the belly of the ship and by assault helicopter from the two-spot flight deck.

A Douglas C-47 Dakota of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, is shown flying in an air display as part of the 95th Anniversary of 4(AC) Squadron.  Dakota 'ZA947' currently wears the livery of 267 'Pegasus' Squadron, which flew in the Transport, Trooping and Re-supply roles in the Middle East and the Mediterranean Theatres during 1943/44.   This aircraft was adopted by Strike Command and issued to the BBMF in March 1993. The Dakota is a year-round workhorse for the BBMF being used in a variety of roles, including general support tasks, such as transporting groundcrew and equipment to display venues or other operating airfields. Importantly, as there are no other multi-engine tailwheel-configured aircraft in RAF service outside the BBMF, she is used for training aircrew for the BBMF multi-engine aircraft and in keeping the pilots of the Lancaster current on a multi-engine tailwheel aircraft during the winter months when the bomber is out of action.  Increasingly, though, the Dakota has become a display aircraft in her right and now appears regularly on the airshow either on her own or as part of a BBMF 3-ship formation, in company with a pair of fighters. She continues to be capable of para-dropping and is used in that role for special commemorative events. During 2004, original and authentic Ôpara-seats' were re-fitted to the Dakota, returning the cabin interior to the original, wartime specification. In 2007 clearance was gained to drop the RAF freefall parachute display team, 'The Falcons' and we will continue to drop them in 2008 and clearance is also expected imminently to drop the latest military static line parachute, thus enabling BBMF to drop the current generation of paratroopers.
