Phantom FG.1 launching from the deck of HMS Ark Royal. No. 892 Naval Air Squadron was the only Fleet Air Arm operational squadron, forming on 31st March 1969 and remaining in business until 15th December 1978, following the end of Ark Royal’s last cruise. Although formed at Yeovilton, the unit moved to Leuchars and continued to use that airfield as home base for the rest of the unit’s existence.
