Imagine if one pooped on the windshield

Six chinooks flying over Sussex. We were right in the flight path and I’m sure we heard them, but not sure when. There have been several times lately we heard something go over, like what the hell was that?

It was a jet once, for sure.

Flightradar24 isn’t great with military aircraft (but I prefer their interface). ADSBexchange does a more complete job. I haven’t seen anything like six of these go over, though.

There are plenty of chinooks in the RAF, but the article says these were American. What’re y’all up to?

They’ve been wintering in Africa and migrated here for the legendary English summer. If we’re really lucky, they might breed.

If they are American, then we’re probably looking to prop up ULEV in London. Got to support the Khan!

If they were flying from West to East, they were loaded with heavy pallets of U.S. $100 bills being sent by the U.S. govt for delivery to Ukraine’s corrupt kleptocrats.

If they were flying from East to West, they were loaded with slightly less heavy pallets of U.S. $100 bills being sent by Ukraine’s corrupt kleptocrats for delivery to U.S.’s corrupt kleptocrats.

Something to do with Meghan and Harry obviously. TG Trump got indicted and those two were off my TV for a couple days.

‘..northwest at Studland in Dorset’ Means right next to the SBS base at Poole. The plot thickens.
