Very good, Graham.
A few additions i noted on my drive-past.

G-FPLD Beech 200 (calibrator) o/s at 12:50
ZA295/U Sea King HC.4 departed 13:00 (night-stopped 14/7/14)
XT453/PO-B Wessex HU.5 (outside 771 Hangar)

I'm off for a dip in the sea now, the weather's far too good for plane-spotting! If i miss anything, be sure to let me know!

And I just missed it! Saw it depart but was still in the car :@ :lol:

I did note what looked like another HC.4 by the tower when driving past about 4pm, but I don't know which one it was.

That'll be that PC-12 thing, Roy. M-IFLY

As you can see, my favourite swimming pool is already overcrowded (so early in the season!), time to return to the quieter spots i reckon.

Perhaps the breeze was onshore at Sennen/Whitesand Bay?? I remember walking across from Sennen (when I was m-u-u-ch younger) in order to escape such a breeze.

That's quite possible, as what little cloud there was around seemed to linger over the North coast.

Also of note this day, the tea shop car-park is cordoned-off, employing a bollard that would meet Buzzer's approval!
