seymore Posted September 7, 2010 Share Posted September 7, 2010 I was wondering why the Helicopter was going round and round as I settled down for supper tonight, and it never occured to me that it was looking for me. I went for a nice sunset flight this evening with a no wind takeofff. Flew for about 20 minutes, climbed to 2500 then shut down and did a bunch of spirals and wingovers to get down. Landed perfectly 100 yards from my front door, packed up and went in for dinner. An hour later a helicopter is circling over in near darkness, but I thought it was due to an accident or something, then a little later a couple of police were knocking on my door. I gave them my mobile number so it dos'nt happen again , but someone had called 999 I have been doing pretty much the same thing all the time over the last couple of years so you would expect the locals to know better so must have been a stranger and the police station is only a mile away so they should be used to me. No harm done just wasted helli time and the cops never accused me of doing anything wrong. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
