Kidlington Airport 24/09/18

Post by Sparky 119 » Mon Sep 24, 2018 1:17 pm

Noted today (24th Sep) departing Kidlington at 11:40 was what appeared to be a camo scheme helicopter which suggests military, unfortunatly it had turned tail on heading west before I could get optics on it, any help with an ID would be appreciated.

Cheers Nighthawke, that was probably the frame I saw. Sadly not one for my book.

By coincidence there was an item on BBC South East News reporting that this machine had performed its first emergency call from Kidlington.
