There was a very low Puma over Gainsborough yesterday lunchtime, I would guess that would be the same helicopter you saw as it was heading south.
Fly low, Fly fast, watch out for speed cameras.

I linked to it for you in the other thread when I explained about it being 'hit and miss' on how we record things, but this will help! http://www.newarkairmuseum.org/newsItem.php?id=3" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
