William invites flight crew to wedding

London - Members of Prince William's search-and-rescue unit say all 27 of them have been invited to attend the royal wedding later this month.

Crew members of the C Flight 22 unit at Royal Air Force Valley on the Welsh island of Anglesey say that they and their partners will be attending the ceremony at Westminster Abbey on April 29.

Flight Commander Iain "Spike" Wright, William's line manager, said he was dumbfounded by the invitation, saying it was a "great honour" and would be "quite good fun".

Flight Lieutenant Thomas "Sticky" Bunn  said onThursday that the Buckingham Palace-stamped invitation was "not something you see every day".

Other search-and-rescue crews will pitch in to help cover the unit's shifts while they take three days off for the festivities.
