Lots of Young Readers have written to us to tell us they love the new Merlin Helicopter!!
Well, just recently the new Merlin has been put through its paces, ready to go into service with the Royal Navy.
This awesome looking helicopter's full title is Merlin HM Mkl and it replaces the anti- submarine Sea King HAS Mk6.
The Merlin carries three people - a pilot, observer and aircrewman. They are 22.9m long and capable of a speed of 167 knots. Their power comes from 3 Rolls Royce
Turbomeca f reepower turbines.
We'll bring you lots more news on the Merlin as it enters service.

Are you keen on watching the wildlife in the garden? Are you getting a bit fed up with next door's cat making a bit of a mess of your lawn?
Well, the Cat Protection charity has come up with some nifty ways to stop cats making themselves a nuisance. Here's some natural things that put them off:
# Orange Peel - scatter it in your flower beds, cats hate the smell! ^ Used tea bags that have been soaked in
eucalyptus oil (adults can get it from chemists) makes a good pong to stop cats entering precious bits of your garden.
# You can spray your fences with diluted surgical
spirit (again adults can buy this and dilute it for you). Use a flower sprayer to to do the spraying but don't forget to mark on it what it's been used for!
# Crush eggshells and put them on your flower
beds, they keep the cats away and slugs don't like them either. 0 Plant some prickly plants, roses and shrubs. Cats don't like the prickles.
