We just get the Police helicopter buzzing around all night - it's bad enough waking people up but when you know it's costing 5,000 an hour of our money just to catch some little toerag in a car worth 200..........

At least their choppers dont break down in mid air like your landy would codders

" Oh fook ... me rotor Diff has a blown its outer planetary gasket again guv .. we're going down.. "

"take it easy Son... I know somone who can fix it... see that house in Wales over there.. with a 'C' on it.. land on that .. they say he can fix anything"

"but how do we descend from 5000ft @ 200ft / second... guv ?"

"dont worry Son.. codders will post a fix for it with old land rover parts soon"

I was pondering this, could the police install one of those motor driven gatlin guns and just hose the toerags off? ok a warning could be shouted over the PA and maybe a few warning shots. Even if it nudged it up to 6k an hour think of the long term savings.

My 4.6 litre rebuild (Land Rover ofcourse!) will start soon! high torque cam etc etc no tail rotor, no overlapping blades!
