How do you get a Merlin helicopter to Afghanistan?
It is now two years since the UK sent the first fleet of Merlin helicopters 4,000 miles (6,400km) to Afghanistan to support Britain's mission there.
The Ministry of Defence filmed this time-lapse footage of the latest journey of a Merlin from RAF Benson to Camp Bastion.
