    Sioux spotted

    I was in my garden cutting the grass wearing shorts(first time this year) when I heard a sound from long ago . Looked up and observed a Bell Sioux helicopter flying from west to east over the site of Meir aerodome in Stoke-on-Trent at 1400 hrs. anyone else observed this unusual sight or have a clue to the operator?

      Probably not it, but the AAC Historic Flight has a Souix as well:

          Elf and safety could have a field day with this, no leg protection, no ear protection, distraction while using machinery, lack of recency on mower, lack of recency in shorts, an accident waiting to happen.
