Prince William takes flight on Falklands duty

Prince William has started work as an RAF search and rescue pilot in the Falkland Islands.

The Duke of Cambridge will be part of a four-man crew in the territory providing cover for both the civilian and military population.

The six-week deployment will see Flight Lieutenant Wales operate as a Sea King co-pilot, a post he has held at RAF Valley in Anglesey since qualifying.
