I think they probably did! I was just about to get into the shower when I heard the helicopter low overhead. I grabbed my camera and ran into the garden and was stood there taking pictures in just my dressing gown! :rolleyes: :lol:

Good thing you took the extra few seconds & remembered that dressing gown ... otherwise the Police would be taking "Naked photog in flight" pictures :lol:

Interesting looking machine you show here. Do you know anything about it?
What purpose was this helicopter built for? What are the very short "wings" on each side?

Thank you

It's an MH-53 Sea Dragon. Used for minesweeping. Those wings are 'sponsons'. They hold extra fuel and electronics

Thank you! I had to Google sponsons <grin>

I never knew fuel was good for electronics! Those electrical sparks are good for the ride I bet! Adds a July 4th type of ride!!!
