In Pictures: Naming Ceremony Of Submarine-Hunter Facility At RAF Lossiemouth

The event was marked with a flypast from a P-8A Poseidon, flanked by two Typhoon fighters.

£100m facility for the Royal Air Force's submarine-hunter aircraft has been named the Atlantic Building.

The name of the facility, based at RAF Lossiemouth, pays tribute to the history of 120 Squadron which fought in the Battle of the Atlantic during the Second World War and now operates the new P-8A Poseidon aircraft.

Sixty personnel from 120 Squadron, also known as CXX Squadron, formally paraded for the first time since re-forming in 2020, at the Moray base on Wednesday.

The parade was opened with a flypast of a Poseidon aircraft, flanked by a pair of Typhoon fighter jets.
