A Poseidon (P-8A) aircraft operated by 120 Squadron, based at RAF Lossiemouth, dropped a recoverable exercise variant of the Mark 54 Lightweight Torpedo in a training flight over Scotland simulating an attack on a submarine.
The Mk 54 can be carried in the Poseidon’s internal weapons bay. The aircraft is transformed from Boeing's 737 passenger aircraft.
