..or this afternoon.
It seemed as though we were under attack this afternoon. I have never seen so many helicopters charging around. I'm fairly sure that they were gunships.
The Ride of the Valkyries was racing through my mind.

I saw a lot of helicopters as well, any ideas anyone?

Saw five flying in line late this morning headed south-west over SE1 then a couple of minutes later they all came roaring back heading eastwards. Looked great!

could it have been anything to do with the arms fair?

JayBee, I saw them too - and heard them from indpoors. As far as I know the phrase 'arms fair' has been dropped as being too, well, accurate.

Now they are called 'Defense Festivals' or 'Peace Celebrations'. So maybe the helicopters yesterday were part of the 'Harvest Defense Festival'.

I suppose we will see more flypasts at the 'Spring Defense Celebration' at Excel next year.
