The RFA MOUNTS BAY Flying Circus – the Landing Ship RFA MOUNTS BAY became briefly one of the busiest airfields in the UK as the ship took up flying training exercises with four squadrons and four different types of helicopters. More than 350 deck landings – including 100 by the new WILDCAT during three weeks of intensive training off the south coast.     The training helped to keep aircrew
