Fantastic pics Chocks, I was looking at the one that hit the superstructure.
That looks like a very poor landing effort, he wasn't even close to the deck. (only joking)

More great photos chock.

The road was called "Perry Road" it ran between the main camp and what was known as Seahawk II, between the airfield and the Maintenance yards. Originally the road went down to St Kevan. With the advent of the more powerfull aircraft it was considered too dangerous to keep the road open and in 1980 it was closed to the public and a new road was built about a mile south linking the main road to the old St Kevan Road. The airfield public viewing enclosure, cafe and shop is now on the new road.

If you look at Culdrose on Google Earth you can still see the road running through the camp at the south end of the main runway.

Not by much mate and I can see why you would think that. The junction looks pretty similar on the photo. I'm just more familiar with it because I was stationed there and I had to cross the junction several times a day.

The FAA has been in existance in one guise or another for almost 104 yrs. The oldest military air service in the world.
Apart from Airships, Kites, Gliders and Helicopters it has operated well over 600 different types of fixed wing aircraft. Some have served with distinction whilst others have been, shall we say "not fit for purpose"
It would be impossible to say which was the best aircraft ever used due to the number of factors you would have to consider. For instance, how would you compare a WW1 Sopwith Pup with a Sea Harrier?
I suppose the most successful aircraft ever used by the Royal Navy was an outdated Bi-Plane, The Fairey Swordfish AKA "The Stringbag" used throughout WW2. An aircraft that saw action in every theatre of the war showing valour at Taranto, Crete, Malta and the Attack on the Bismark.
I was going to list the 10 best but it proved impossible to chose, so here's my 10 favourite aircraft instead.

I love seeing the pics Chocks, just don't know anything about them apart from what you tell us! My knowledge is improving now though, thanks
Owen would like to be dealing with the aftermath of the crashes, he is keen on becoming a fireman, but is looking at doing it through the RAF at the minute, so he can do more than just firefight - his ideal would be to join the NYFD, slight snag is we don't live in the US lol .

Sue. Young Owen can't go wrong by joining the RAF Fire Service. It's the best training you can get. It now has recognisable civilian qualifications too.
Many of my friends left the armed forces and have gone on into civillian services all around the world.
