    Hi (This is my first real report so go gentle)

    RAF predanack is Situated on the Lizard Peninsular in South East Cornwall near the village of mullion. The airfield used to be a WW2 boomer base but now days it is partly linked with RNAS Culdrose (just down the road) providing helicopter training and firefighter training as well as acting as an emergency landing site.

    Being that the site is still partly live access proved a little difficult owing to the long walk. The site is protected in more ways than just military personnel Adders and Vipper's also do their bit to keep you off as well.

    Situate on one side of the airfield is a place where airplanes and helicopters come to die, at my time of visit there was 6 airplanes and 4 helicopters but according to locals they always change. These airframes are used by the firefighters to simulate crashes and casualty Evacuation.

    On to the pictures:

    The doors were open so had a peak inside (even though it looks straight on the outside on the inside it has been made to sit at a angle)
