I was just looking through some holiday snaps and saw one with a radar plane that was flying really low over Newquay. I know there's nothing mysterious about it, but does anyone have any information on what it was doing?

If I can remember correctly, it was around the time of the foiled attempt, during the summer holidays.

Nimrod R1

It's the second one, I'm afraid I can't post the photo, I havn't got a scanner, sorry.

It was going really low, it looked amazing, the ariel spinning and the noise, it was so loud!

I think it may have been to do with the terror plot, Newquay is a big, crowded town right near the coast.

I saw it multiple times throughout the day, a couple of times in town, a few more when I was surfing. There are alot of RAF aircraft buzzing around, but this felt different because it was pretty low.
