We have had multiple Chinooks over Kent in the last couple of days/nights, including one very swift night time visit to the RE Barracks at Gillingham.

Can't beat the sound of approaching Wokka's, certainly brings the neighbours out.

That would be one way to clear those crowded beaches.

It’s a bit late but there was an Atlas just west of Southend around 5.15 this afternoon.
