RNAS Culdrose Airday 2014

Neil and Tina's Secret Mission

Running up to Air Day 2014, Neil and Tina went behind the scenes at RNAS Culdrose.  Sadly, Neil's cracked rib, prevented him taking part in some of the challenges...but we still hurt him, with all the laughter as you'll see from the videos.  

Tina re-lives the 'horror' of a fitness test

Thanks to 'Dreckly' for helping out.

Wet Drills

Walking the Plank

It's a bit much to ask Tina to walk the plank, but she didn't have any qualms about it!

You can see all the photos in this gallery

Flying the Seaking Simulator

And the piece de resistance, was flying the Royal Navy Seaking Helicopter simulator.  At last, something Neil could take part in...

But how did they get on...have a listen:
