Greenwich From The Air…

You may remember my mentioning my friend Ian who’s a helicopter pilot – he was able to clear up the mystery of why there are always so many helicopters over Greenwich.


Although some of them are police guys tracking felons from the dodgier areas of town, and others are transport monitors checking out the state of the Blackwall Tunnel (and of course the really noisy Chinooks are MOD and can do what they damn please…) most of them are just circling round in a holding pattern, waiting for permission to enter central London airspace.

He promised me some photographs next time he was over Greenwich (and with a passenger – let’s face it, I would have worried if he’d taken snaps himself)and he’s come through with some doozies.

There are more, but for some reason (as with yesterday’s pics of Nelson’s funeral barge) they are refusing to load. I suspect it’s a Blogger problem. Ho hum…
