Some Dead Harriers ~Culdrose/Predannack/Yeovilton 2006

It rained on both visits and wandering around Predannack in thick sea mist was a tad spooky.

You think you had problems!
Ignoring the rain at Culdrose and Predannack, it was also dark by the time we got to Predannack

These are I think the same 4 Harriers as we waited for our guide - so this was the brightest pic out of them all

and we ended up taking photos using the headlights.....

What a shame to see ZH809 the former Navy Display Aircraft in that smart blue scheme, should at least be in a Museum or Collection like Yeovilton.
