RAF Chinook helicopters on training exercises in Liverpool
Liverpool Daily Post
May 10 2011

TWO RAF Chinooks spotted over Liverpool yesterday were on training exercises.

The support helicopters dropped into the Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in Thomas Drive, Broad Green before heading off to Liverpool John Lennon Airport to refuel.

Crews were practising landing in build-up areas at various helipads across the North West as part of Afghanistan training.

apparantly the river Tigris in Iraq is very similar to the Mersey (width wise I think) and so the tornados used to use it for training before they went out there!

You will probably see a few around the North West - they are using the north/south low level corridor between Manchester and Liverpool airport control zones. Its a narrow corridor (airway) which allows light aircraft & helicopters to transit the area without getting involved with all the commercial air traffic in the area. The corridor has a max altitude of 1250 feet, so anything using it appears fairly low!!

i seen them when i was walking home from work, i think they were dropping aid packages such as rice, water and clothing to the effected areas in birkenhead, the army are refusing to land incase of infection. reports suggest that some areas of seacombe were blocked off by police barriers through fear of mass crowding appealing for help. the army have appologised and radio messages have been broadcasted to indicate that these forgotten areas will be included on the next run dropping off supplies, tensions have calmed for now!
