RNAS Culdrose Pre-Airshow Day – Goodbye 771

Thanks for sticking with me over this marathon of posts from RNAS Culdrose; I hope you have enjoyed them. I thoroughly enjoyed the photographic opportunity presented on the day – something very different from my usual subjects. I decided to dedicate my last post to our Search and Rescue Squadran 771 who are due to be decommissioned at the end of this year. This was the last opportunity to see them based here in Cornwall. They have provided search and rescue services across the South West and have been based at Culdrose since 1974, so it will be sad to see them go. During their service the crew have had several recognitions for their bravery and a number of high profile rescues. You can read all about the Search and Rescue Squadron here, and please enjoy some of the last images of 771 Squadron at their Cornwall base.771 Naval Air Squadran 771 Naval Air Squadran 771 Naval Air Squadran Search and RescueSearch and Rescue Search and Rescue

Well, that’s it for Culdrose. It will soon be back to tranquil boats on the estuary and garden birds (Ah! Peace). There is just one more post coming up of one particular image from the Airshow that recently grabbed the attention of The Frecce Tricolori and Wex Photographic after I entered it into their #WexMondays photography competition. The image didn’t win but I was contacted by one of the Wex team who asked if I would like to do a write up on the image which they would then share. With it being such a great opportunity, how could I say no? That will be coming up next followed by a more tranquil post of images from the Appledore and Instow Regatta. Thanks for reading. 🙂
