Thank you for the link rather glad it does not come down to us. We do get a lot because of Yeovilton usually 2 or 3 would not fancy 10!

Thanks for the link. They'll be missing us.

Does it say anywhere at what height they'll be flying at?
No idea sorry - I just copied and pasted the FB link I saw. I should think low enough to be noticed as it's a flypast. We are near RAF Welford and regularly get a pair* flying low over us, plus the odd Chinook. Mine are fairly non-plussed about them now, but 10 would be a different matter. This flypast will miss us by around 20 miles, but I may bring mine in just in case there is a diversion as that's not far.

*of big military helicopters!! I have no idea what sort they are!!

Thank you, it looks like it's very close to my friends horse who had an incident with a low flying helicopter (it was so low it broke the branch over the poor horses head). I have passed on the information.

They flew literally over the top of me today and it was rather uneventful and not that loud
