As well as flying her own Lynx helicopter – of 815 Naval Air Squadron based in Yeovilton – Dragon has been flexing muscle as part of joint training with Typhoons from her affiliated 6 Squadron RAF.

Holding various flying exercises with 11 Squadron, based at RAF Conningsby, and Boeing E3-Ds from 8 Squadron based at RAF Waddington, Dragon also exchanged personnel for the RAF to experience life on a ship and vice versa.
