I did many trips over London in the Met's squirrel twin turbine. Couple of trips to ,what was ,RAF Nutts Corner . An enjoyable flight in a Chinook from RAF Odiham to Alderney for a weekend Jolly. We were supposed to take two chinooks but only one was serviceable. It was a Battle of Britain fly by celebration over the Channel Islands.We did some ramp riding on the trip over and found hydraulic oil dripping on our heads. The F/Sgt loadmaster smiled and said laconically that," these things leak like a sieve.It's the tail rotor gear box". Gulp
My step-daughter and her husband own a helicopter training school and so I have been able to have many flights with them. Last was from the north of London, across Heathrow (we had to wait and watched the planes landing from above them) and then along the Thames through to Docklands and then up over the West Ham and Spurs grounds, absolutely fantastic!
