    Definatly no EC135 with the Alouettes I saw today but I'm sure everyone wasn't in the same place at the same time so could be that different people saw different formations!

    I saw them yesterday at flying over hazelhatch.

    There was 6 Alouettes in a V formation and there
    was also the 3 139's behind them in a V formation also!!

    I'd do anything to see a pic of that! Twould definatly go on my wall :D

    A few mins later they were all lined up, one behind the other,
    Behind and above actually. Was legend, Nearly crashed the car looking at them lol :shock: :D :D :D

    If anyone has any pics of the 9 of them in formation can you please post em, would love that pic:D

    Well,
    Actually six Alouettes, however for about an hour only five of them were flying, because one dropped in at my place of work :wink: for press coverage in the middle of D6W. :!: :!: :!:

    I was pretty shocked to see them zoom past the window at high speed, but quickly figured WW3 or retirement... ok it's time to say goodbye!

    It wouldn't be the first time, three years ago a heli dropped in on Lakelands Rugby Park, and Bill Cullen paid a visit two years ago!

    Cheers,
    Byron

    Well the photographs confirm the evidence, but as I said for about an hour there probably would have been less than six airbourne, none the less sad to see them go, I got my last proper look at them in full action as Bray, ref my website for shots if you like.

    It'll be sad to see them go!
