Re: Favourite bit of fence

All good things come to an end and as predicted access to most of this fence is no longer possible, the area was cordoned off last week and workmen have started preparatory work to demolish the old RAF Control Tower and Fire Section. These images were taken between June -Sept 2020. It has been good ...

Re: "Working" Helicopters (Electric/WPD, HeliMed, etc.)

A couple of visits within walking distance from home of the new Cornwall Air Ambulance which has been in service since April. Fortunately its services weren't required on either occasion. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49905761983_6d859242b8_b.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50135531663...

Re: Aviation- On This Day

Late afternoon 25/09/18 I was on my way home from my sisters and noticed an A400 in the circuit at Newquay so I stopped to get some photos, my scanner didn't stop for the next hour. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/47987142126_97b3c60111_b.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/1939/44915020411_c1e526...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Personally, I haven’t had a holiday this year, I was hoping to get a few days in Cornwall during October, but that now looks like that will be a no-go if further restrictions come in. It has been ridiculous in Cornwall this Summer. Just this week we took the dog for a walk on Bodmin Moor and bumped...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Indeed, no sympathy whatsoever for him or anyone else who has been caught out by these quarantine rules. If he booked prior to March it would have been prudent to cancel and try an insurance claim. If he has booked recently while being unable to pay the domestic bills, words defy me. I really don't ...

2nd Sep 15 at Newquay. Westland had just started training South Korean Navy Wildcat aircrew at the Newquay site, along with the ongoing Algerian Navy Super Lynx training.

26/08/14 at Newquay.

Re: Aviation- On This Day

Five years ago today I'd just parked up at Watergate Bay with the Mrs, Daughter and dog when this flew over. After promising that I'd just pop up to Newquay Airport (5 min drive) and get a couple of quick photos, I eventually returned to join them 90 mins later. I wasn't too popular that day. https:...
