Royal Navy’s HMS Bangor Recovers Lost Sonar

The team on the Bahrain-based minehunter HMS Bangor has found and recovered a large sonar lost during the latest Anglo-French-US exercise in the Gulf, Artemis Trident.

The Brits were asked to assist the US Navy when one of its sonar buoys towed by MH-53 Sea Dragon helicopter became detached and disappeared.

We used our powerful sonar and many years of experience to locate the missing sonar on the seabed,” said AB(MW) Nathan Taylor.

“A US dive team joined Bangor with their Seabotix underwater robot and used it to attach a line to the sonar so it could be recovered.”

The find marks a highlight in our deployment to the region and one to remember,” added Lieutenant Commander Charlie Luxford.
