This R-22 showed up and was doing Training auto rotations etc.
The funny thing was a fixed wing Commercial pilot Cherokee showed up as well and the fella in the Chopper was not impressed and told him so, as did not do radio calls properly etc before entering Stratford Airspace. Laughing so much forgot to take pic of Cherokee. The Pro's eh....!!!
Young Ricki was in get a Voucher for his Mum's Birthday so wandered over and showed him what she would be going up in and tried it on for size and was suitably impressed.
