The Olympic Torch Lands at RNAS Culdrose

Tonight, along with the boy I made my way to RNAS Culdrose (It is a Naval Base, not RAF) to await the arrival of the Olympic Torch. Not lucky (or important) enough to be invited inside the base, I stood at the perimeter fence of the air station. I thought I was in a good position for the plan to fly overhead, but the damn wind changed direction in the last hour and the plan landed on the other end of the runway.

To my amazement, I would say at least 1500 – 2000 people had the same idea. It was a truly amazing site to see so many families watch a plane land. The atmosphere was great, with people generally excited the torch was landing in their own backyards.
