Sibs & Helicopters ..



Another flat day out today ..noticed the helicopter getting lower and lower and lower and lower ......

You can just see the first of the 2 SIBS on the ramp as it went over..

Pics speak for themselves ....I didn't like to get too close ....

Is the ultimate SIBclub outing ? All we need is FC470 - whisper = sorted

Bloody great big twin rotor helicopter - may need some work on that

Nice pics & great day to be out on the water. Been making new brackets and fittings for my steering this morning ready for getting on the water on Saturday.
Keep hearing the chinooks thudding around at the moment. It flew past a little while ago on the way back to Odiham probably.
