    Hi All
    This past few years seeing military helicopters, often Chinooks or super pumas in pairs over east London isn't unusual, I have wondered where they are from though.
    Today (15 minutes ago!) however a fleet of about a dozen different military helicopters went over, the picture here is the best I could get given the lack of warning, so quite a lot of them escaped me.....does anybody know what was going on?

    A very loose formation. Seems to be made up of Sea King's and Lynx's.

    Apparently the Torchwood team have been spotted in the capital and with negitiations with the 456 being at a delicate stage we need to find them.

    LOL...@Waynos :lol: Iwas watching it too, but I didn't think it would draw more choppers than the Tower of London had!
    Crewchief....there was a few Super Puma's ahead of them, I never got to the camera as quick as i really needed to.....I was wondering if there was an event or flap on!

    Could be something to do with the FAA celebrations, 100 years of navy flying?
