Zephyr, a bald eagle, joined the Army Air Corps 'family' in 2011. She is owned by Lisa Falco and resides at Eden Falconry.
The first recorded instance of an official regimental mascot appears to be a goat belonging to the Royal Welch Fusiliers during the American War of Independence (c1775). Mascots are usually indicative of the recruiting area of many regiments. The Army Air Corps is a mixture of personnel from differing countries so it seemed pertinent that our mascot should reflect something we have in common - our capbadge.
