The Corkscrew by Robert Tomlin.


The Corkscrew by Robert Tomlin.

The highlight of the annual Fowey Royal Regatta is undoubtedly the performance of the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team The Red Arrows. Each year the crowds flock to this historic Cornish seaside port to see the spectacular display. There are frequent visitors to the port of Fowey and as part of the 2005 celebrations the RFA Sir Galahad anchored in the river estuary. It provided a memorable backdrop fro the Reds seen here performing their 'Corkscrew' manoeuvre over this famous ship with the unmistakable landmarks of Fowey in the background. It is August 2005 and during another memorable evening, the Red Arrows displayed over the beautiful Fowey estuary in Cornwall, England, and the famous replica of RFA Sir Galahad which had moored during the Fowey Royal Regatta Week. The gypo part of the team perform an extremely difficult manoeuvre rolling around the smoke trails of a pair who fly together, one inverted above the other leaving a blaze of colour across the early evening sky. Many will remember the original Sir Galahad which was destroyed during the Falklands war in 1982 with the loss of many lives, and the appalling injuries suffered by Simon Weston who escaped barely alive from the carnage. He now forms part of a charity, Weston Spirit, which aims to help young people in inner cities. The new Sir Galahad is part of the Royal Fleet Auxiliary and is 140.6m in length, with a breadth of 19.5m. She has a speed of 17 knots, with a complement of 49. She has one spot for a Sea King on the flight deck and on the vehicle deck, one spot for a Sea King, Lynx or Chinook.

NameInfo
HawkThe BAe Hawk News of the first flight of the Hawk on 21 August 1974 was greeted with derision by Hunter pilots at the RAF's tactical weapons training unit. For understandably selfish reasons they were sceptical about the ability of the Hawk to replace the rugged, versatile and much-loved Hunter. "Forget Hawk - Fly Hunter" was one typical bumper sticker of the time but now 25 years on, such scepticism seems barely credible. With the arrival of the first Hawk aircraft at RAF Valley in November 1976, a new era of flying training began, and the first of thousands of fast-jet pilots discovered the joys of flying this truly thoroughbred aircraft. Since then, the BAe Hawk has earned a reputation as the world's best advanced trainer and light strike aircraft. The basic design has been refined and improved in a series of variants ranging from multi-role light fighter to the US Navy's carrier trainer. But the one quality that sets the Hawk apart from other aircraft is handling characteristics. In the on pilots own words, - "I had flown the Gnat and Hunter and in 1979 had just finished flying Canberra PR9s before transferring to the Jaguar, when I was given the opportunity to get some flying on the Hawk. It was a revelation. Here was an aircraft that was pure joy to fly, at low level it settled comfortably at 450 knots at around 150 feet and it could be flown into valleys under the most frightening weather safe in the knowledge that it could be turned around without losing airspeed almost in its own length. And at medium level? 1v1 combat in this aircraft is something else, - compared with the Hawk, the Jaguar is like flying an anvil".
