A kitten has been found at a naval helicopter base after travelling 300 miles clinging to a car bumper. The cat - now named Tigger - was discovered by Lieutenant Nick Grimmer after he heard “quiet meowing”. The animal had been clinging onto the car from Birmingham Airport all the way to the Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose, near Helston in Cornwall.
The BAe Hawk T.1 of 736 Naval Air Squadron gets new tail markings, featuring the historic 736 NAS Lightning Bolt and the CU (for Culdrose) base designation on the fin tip. The call sign number (e.g. 840) appears on the nose and “Royal Navy” titles appear under the aircraft’s serial number on the rear fuselage.
