Re: RNAS Culdrose, Piston engines.

Three lovely shots with the last one something special.

Not sure if true, but in the 60's when I was attached to the Ark Royal I was told by one of the more 'modern pilots' that the Swordfish was one of the most difficult of kites to fly? If true, the pilot must have been crapping himself. Although having said that it's probably easier to land on solid ground than at sea.
