FAREWELL TO 'PRINCIPE DE ASTURIAS' AFTER 25 YEARS OF SERVICE

Kevin Reardon / 2013-02-07

His Royal Highness the Prince of Asturias, accompanied by Minister of Defence, the Chief of Staff of the Navy and a number of other military dignatories was present at la base naval de Rota  today marking the official farewell ceremony of the aircraft carrier 'Principe de Asturias', following its 25 years of service.
 
After being greeted by the authorities, Don Felipe attended a lecture on the history of the aircraft carrier.
 
Then, from the bridge, the Prince watched a naval demonstration involving the strategic projection ship LHD 'Juan Carlos I' and the frigates' Reina Sofia 'Victoria' and 'Santa Matría'. The flypast was carried out by four 'Harrier AV8' aircraft belonging to the 9th naval on Flotilla Navy aircraft which made one pass.
 
The naval parade ended with another flypast, this time comprising three 'AB 212' helicopters from 3rd Squadron, three 'Sea King SH3D' helicopters from 5th Squadron, three 'Huges 500' helicopters from 3rd Squadron and three ‘Harrier’ aircraft.
 
Later, Prince D. Felipe said a few words thanking the crew for their many loyal years of service and wishing them all well in their new assignments. He then officially closed the Book of Honor of the ship by signing his name.
 
The aircraft carrier 'Principe de Asturias' now journeys to Ferrol, where it will conclude its operational life.
