2 Chinooks

It does exactly what it says on the tin. If it's not about football then it belongs in here for discussion. Once again we ask that you respect your fellow posters.

2 Chinooks

Unread post by karnataka »

just flew past my window and then hovered less than about 10 metres above the ground for about 2 minutes then flew off, came back and repeated the same manoeuvre several times, they're still there for the 5th time as I'm typing. I guess it's a training exercise but it's a bloody noisy one.

Funny you should say that, if you look at the bottom of this pic, you can see part of a flock of about 1000 starlings who didn't seem all that bothered tbh

Lots going on in and around Pembrey airfield today so I assume it’s all part of a significant training programme.
