Apparently the 500 Foot rule doesn't apply in certain countries.



We really must get this passed over here then there'd be so many more roads for us to venture down (pun intended!) Smile

Hey! He didn't use his turn signal!

Actually, I wouldn't mind having a few missles and guns on my morning commute to work. Might cut back on some of the traffic.

Just remember the first rule of helicopter combat:

"Whoever sees the other guy first, wins. Whoever gets seen first, is dead."

I live near RAF Fairford, an airbase operated by the USAF, and we have the occasional exercise when the B52???s come over for a couple of weeks. They normally go out around 0730 and return 1700???ish and it has been known on at least one or two occasions for one of the B52???s to mistake the A419 duel carriageway as the runway and start a landing approach before being advised of their error.

So maybe the 405 movie is not so far away from reality !!
