The Black Cats formed in 2001 with two front-line Lynx maritime attack helicopters as the first Royal Navy Helicopter Display Team since the disbandment of The Sharks in 1992. Originally known as the Lynx Pair until renamed The Black Cats in 2004 the aircrew and engineers are all volunteers from 702 Naval Air Squadron and the Lynx Helicopter Force based at the Royal Naval Air Station Yeovilton.
