'Alien Formation' at North Weald

Post by TJJ »

A Puma helicopter – XW224 – from 230 Squadron at RAF Benson and two Chinooks – ZK559 and ZK560– from 7 Squadron at RAF Odiham, callsign 'Alien Formation', came in for a brief visit on Sunday 13 October to drop off some passengers after performing a flypast over the NFL game at Tottenham.

The movements had been briefed to us a few days before and we were lucky that the disused part of Runway 12/30 was available for them to land on because they needed a fair bit of separation for the effects of rotor downwash.

Made the best of your opportunity here. 'Tiger Puma' is becoming a bit of a regular here recently, hopefully third time lucky for a visit in the sunshine? :smile:
