Re: exercise chameleon

Hi Danny, 'fraid not. Maybe if there are Chinooks coming then they might come by this way. As ever conditions were perfect for a shot of them. At least I got out for some fresh air.

On the first mission they passed by Culloden from Forres and headed for the Great Glen around 21 00. Surprised the life out of my brother.
