Culdrose Google Map Query

Post by Thumper »

I'm wondering if someone can tell me what the 2 aircraft are by the mock carrier at RNAS Culdrose courtesy of Google Maps. They have a red outline on the wings.

Grid Reference: 50° 5'17.39"N 5°14'54.06"W

Google maps is currently passing off that image as 2013 but due to the Harriers we all know that's not right, therefore, any information, I.D, purpose would be great, thank you very much :smile:

Both look like Harriers to me... Early T.4's maybe?

They are Sea Harriers, wrapped up in plastic. They were there when I visited 2010 or 2011 (I will have to check my photos).

Definitely FA2's. I'm guessing the google image is at least a couple of years old, much building work has since been completed around 750 and 771 NAS.
