The Chinoock which mysteriously goes up and down the river at approximately this time several times each week. Today it circled The Shard and The City at least six times, a great joy ride for whoever it is that is on board. Bang go a few more thousands of my Taxes.

Also saw the chinook circle the Shard last week. Thought it was going to land on my roof the noise was so great. We do also see apaches, linx and merlin helicopters regularly go up and down the river. Ps Lord Gainsford explained what they are-I'm not that much of a spotter!

I didn't see Gainsford's Post, would be grateful if you could post a link please. Meanwhile Chinook is on its fourth time around The Shard since 19.57.

My guess would be it's being used for the 24 shoot which is going on in various different parts of london; last night it was Borough, tonight it's Camden and somewhere else on Friday night.

I was dining in Heron Tower on the 40th Floor and watched around 10 people jump out with Union Jack Parachutes.

I saw the parachutists too - possibly practicing for trooping the colour?
