Cornwall catch-up (Apr/May).

Here are a few images from Cornwall taken during April and May, mainly from Newquay. I really should get out a bit more and travel a bit further afield.

Great photos, still good to see Newquay/St Mawgan still gets a good mix of visitors.

I get a feeling the RAF must like dropping in there :)

Do like the last shot over the Headland hotel :clap:

Super set of pics!

Does Cornwall get much mil activity in general? Heading down for a weeks holiday in mid July and staying near Callington (N of Plymouth, and to the West of Dartmoor). I get the impression its more likely to be heli ops in the area than fast jet.

Lovely work once again,

Lovely shots and more variety than I expected too.

What's the story about the Lynx in what appears to be hybrid markings - it looks like a British Naval Lynx but with Algerian Naval markings on it too?

Many thanks for the comments, good to meet you a few weeks ago IanH.

Mainly Helis. There is limited fast jet activity and Hercs from Brize sometimes go low level. It's very much hit and miss, more often than not it is quiet.

It's one of the new Super Lynx Mk140s built for the Algerian Navy, they wear UK serials while flying in the UK prior to delivery. They have been flying from Yeovil for a number of months but this one spent a month at Newquay training aircrew.
