Harrier

By ptoshea
While walking the South West coastal path we came across these abandoned aircraft in a place called Predannack. There are several Harriers and old Wessex Helicopters and other aircraft. The place is quite eerie and it is sad to see these great aircraft left the rot.

The image was shot in RAW then converted to HDR, I hope you enjoy.
I'll post some more if there is any interest.

Great photo - nice use of HDR.

Could be RAF Predanack - looks like an interesting place from what you can see on Google Maps.

Taking your input Steve and looking at my search results, I would tend to agree.

I need to get down there...

Appreciate the update.

All the aircraft at Predannack are ex-Royal Navy School of Flight Deck Operations from nearby RNAS Culdrose. Used these days for aircraft crash recovery exercises and other bits and pieces.

Cracking photo, really like the evocative lighting, although sad to see the GR3 looking so battered.
