Sorry Col, I think you've got me mixed up with someone else, the Gannet is an aircraft I'm fairly familiar with ....
Hi Dr S, i have just joined and saw your `request` for information on `the strange beast`
You may already be aware but if not, i is a FAIRY GANNET` These were used by the Royal Navy for Antisubmarine warfare (ASW) and Airborne early warning (AEW) operations.
Hope this puts your mind at rest

As a newbie, I've been very interested in the RAF St Mawgan thread. My father, George Tyacke, was the first NCO at St Mawgan tö prepare the station for re-commissioning. I think this was in mid-1951 (we had just come back from Aden) and he often referred to his first office as being a large packing case on its side and with a sheet of tarpaulin suspended from the top edge to provide weatherproofing/door.
I've spent many days at various St Mawgan Air Days over the years and was always interested in the station's past.
Back in the late 50's/early 60's I read an article in RAF Flying Review (now long since defunct) about a Sunderland that was so badly shot up on a patrol that it couldn't make a water landing and was forced to land on the grass at St Mawgan. I believe that John Seagrave may have been a gunner on this aircraft. Can anybody confirm the event or throw any light on the story? I know that a Sunderland landed on nearby Praa Sands but there is no Seagrave listed as crew on this occasion.
Any information out there? Thanks
