RNLI Penlee Lifeboat Night Exercise

With about 40 minutes notice of a night exercise with the Penlee Lifeboat and Newquay Coastguard Helicopter I made my way to Newlyn to photograph the event if possible. Well the RNLI duly dispatched the lifeboat on time and the helicopter was closing, when it suddenly did a u-turn to return to base due to impending heavy fog at Newquay airport.  So that was that end of exercise before it started lol (still happens a lot with aviation stuff) . So here are a couple of images from the evening:
