An earlier plan to form up as a Meteorological Flight in India had been abandoned and 1360 (Helicopter) Flight formed at RAF St. Mawgan with Whirlwinds from X Flight of 22 Squadron, on the Cornish north coast to prepare for support operations in the Pacific islands. It disbanded on 1 Feb 1958, still at St. Mawgan and became 217 Squadron.
