I was a member of the Royal Observer Corps on the St. Columb Post which was the nearest ROC unit to RAF St. Mawgan.. On April 17th, 1969 my Chief Observer saw the U-2 on approach to St. Mawgan. Later the same day a C-141 Starlifter also arrived ostensibly with hydraulic failure!. For anyone interested in military aviation St. Mawgan was often able to get some interesting movements and these days it is all to easy to forget that we still have an air force.
