We had 2 Apaches over our house on friday night about 10:45, they both came east to west then turned around, 1 then sped off, the other cicled for another 15 mins, was he lost?

 

No, he wont have been lost, as part of the exercise scenario he would have been looking for insurgents/or circling giving protection to another helicopter which may have been on the ground.

Hi, I'm glad to say it has gone to a good home, sorry I outbid you but it took me right back to my childhood!! it's going for a light restoration and then will be used for what it was made for and als

Fort Stewart in Georgia I believe. This is one of the Normandy recovered ones which were on display at Commes until recently.

They fly over all the time, we are a low flying area.

In a few weeks time they will do a nighttime excersize between or village and a adjacent one. Maybe they will land and such? Should stick out my thumb for a ride.

Sorry forgot to ask. On my travels back into Manchester around 1pm (yesterday thursday the 3rd) I saw a Russian tracked APC with small turret on top on a low loader coming off the M60 and heading west on the M62. Then around 2pm a WW2 Jeep with wire cutter on a trailer heading south on the M61. Anyone lay claim to them?

There should be a pile of Man SVs heading out of Ashchurch over next few weeks as our Regts are picking them up to deliver to all the Sqns, we are also casting at least half of our FFR tithimous Land rovers and all our 4 tonne Bedford/Daf fleet -so Withams will be busy again soon

Wow a jeep driver waving at a Land Rover. He obviously wished he had a Land Rover rather than having to make do with a jeep:D:D

PS: Forgot to post Apache out of the office window in Chesham Friday morning.
