    Great photo's! I can't say it's like that now, best we can do is a couple of C152's an AC11 and a DR40....even the Hunter hasn't been for a while

    Yes this is great news for Cornwall and could not be better, hopefully just a start. My excellent source got carried away with the number of jobs, but then he was a marketing man!

    I've just scanned a few more slides taken in and around the HAS Site on the 26th June 2003. Six Jaguars and three Tornado F3's were in residence for a couple of weeks.

    A cousin of mine used to be a photographer on nimrod aircraft, he told that when he was stationed at st mawgan in the late seventies the nimrod he was attached to was in a hanger having some minor work done on it the crew were inside the aircraft and they picked up a russian submarine underwater approx 15 miles out at sea how true this is i dont know but he had no reason to lie. makes me wonder what those nimrods had in them and what a waste to scrap them!
