The Front Line Squadron embarked on HMS Ark Royal


892 Squadron. The Front Line Squadron.

Homebase RNAS Yeovilton, Somerset, England.

Mother Ship. HMS Ark Royal.

892 Squadron's badge is prominent on the fin in red, white and black; the black letter "Omega" Ω was chosen for the marking as it is the last letter of the Greek alphabet, and at the time it was thought that 892 would be the last fixed-wing Naval Squadron. The white letter "R" is the code for HMS Ark Royal and the white "001" on the nose is the individual aircraft ident. The Squadron's Phantoms carried codes between 001 and 017.
