Hello,

is there a chanche that the VH-3's can be seen from the outside. ? If yes, then it's worth a trip from Holland to the Uk.

thanks

Arie,

The 3 VH3D are all locked away in the terminal hangar, and there is no access. According to the very, very good source who works there, the helos are not expected to fly until Friday. The 2 UH60 and the 4 CH47 were visible yesterday morning, but only very distant and from 1 spot along the fence line on the Main Road.

groetjes
Phil

Hendriks

Have heard from a normally very reliable source that the VH3s will fly tomorrow (Friday) to do a rehersal/ route famil. Should be airborne by midday and back by 1730 latest.

Obviously, although the source is reliable, this doesn't mean it will definitely happen

NOTAM suggests 8 helicopters routing from Biggin Hill to Southsea. Would suggest UH-60s, CH-47s & VH-3s will be involved.
