Yes it was the Chinook - I have some great pictures which I will post tomorrow, but I am a bit tired after all the driving around!! Great to meet a few more forum members - hope to see you again soon! Good night for now!

It was brilliant to meet WhirlyGirl, WhirlyGuy, Catwoman and Blme at last (thanks for the cuppa - was just the job). Sorry didn't get to meet you rotorcraig but glad you all enjoyed the show.
Shame abut the Chinook wheel falling off nut just enforced how professional the crews are.
Full credit to Neil Porter for bringin it all together despite some tense days in the immediate run up.
I understand the Schweizer got zapped by the Lynx crew. Cool
The rotary displays were indeed brilliant although the Lynx was poor by last years standards.

Stay safe ome and all and hope to meet up again sometime in the not too distant future perhaps.

Looks like a very impressive display, but who on Earth chooses a Cornetto over a 99 ??!!
