Not sure if this is in the correct place , but here goes anyway.
As Monday was nice and sunny with no snow , thought i'd take a walk around Predannack before retuning to work after the Xmas break.
Several airframes reside here for fire and rescue training .

WT308 & sister ship WT309 used to be regular visitors to Culdrose and St Mawgan

Really interesting images, sad to see some of the aircraft in that state. How long has that Jag been there? :sad: The Wessex on their side are a bit weird, almost like dead insects!

Thanks for the comments everyone .
The Jaguar arrived at Culdrose from DCAE on Oct 13th and moved to Predannack the following day.
