Re: Quick visit to Culdrose 26/1/17

You were extremely unlucky not to catch the Aurora that's been operating from CU all week.
Also just a friendly warning but photos posted in this area haven't exactly been appreciated by some members in the past so you might wish to move them,that said hope you enjoyed your visit.

Re: RNAS Culdrose Sea Fury crash 2014.

I believe this topic has already been done to death and only the pilot himself will truly know if he made the right decision.All I know is that a disaster to the crowd was averted,the aircraft was saved and the pilot walked away,what more could you ask for?

One smaller correction. It is not a "RAF" jet. :D I'm sure the fish-heads would take offence.
I think you mean Airy-Fairies,Fish-Heads drive the ships.
