Very much doubt it was a CH-53, most likely a HMCG S-92A or RN Merlin.

No record of a CH-53/MH-53 having flown in UK airspace today, no idea what it was.

Most likely it was NorthSky and I was fooled by the dark colour and lack of markings from directly beneath, I never knew we had any dark coloured S92s so my brain made me see a ch53
Oh well, it made a nice noise
