Despite Mother Nature throwing everything at RNAS Culdrose this year, during its annual Air Day, those braving the weather were treated to a rare glimpse into the world of naval aviation.

As one of the most popular attractions in the Cornish calendar, people travelled from far and wide to meet serving members of the Royal Navy and get up close to a wide variety of aircraft types.


Commander Ian Fitter, Executive Commander of RNAS Culdrose said: “The reason that we hold the event, is to promote a greater understanding of Culdrose, the Fleet Air Arm and the Royal Navy. We’ve been pleased with all the interest shown in the interactive stands; ranging from landing a paper airplane on an aircraft carrier to trying on survival clothing. We plan for every eventuality, but unfortunately cannot control the weather.”


We would like to say a big thank you to our visitors for their patience and understanding today. Although there has been very little flying, many enjoyed the all-weather activities on the ground, from the arena to the wide variety of children’s entertainment.”
