A US Navy helicopter seen over the island and at the airport this week was on a mission to collect parts.

The helicopter, a Sikorsky Seahawk, is used by the US Navy for search and rescue, and medical evacuations as well as combat and was designed for maritime use.

A detachment from the US Navy is based on the island at present, along with two hi-tech P-8 Poseidon submarine hunter aircraft.

They were deployed to the island to carry out reconnaisance work from the airport, which was a permanent US Naval Air Station until its closure in 1995.
