    I did have a look at the anorak geeky forum in the end. Not really my thing and not very livley. The last thread started was about Nottholt closing for a couple of months while they upgrade the ageing runway, yes rivitting stuff! I may become a member anyway as I could liven that geek forum up with a joke and music thread....

    Only kidding.

    Even the RCMP Musical Ride and Tenors will be there.

    RCMP horses add Canadian touch to Queen's 90th birthday party

    The RCMP Musical Ride and Canada's own Tenors vocal quartet will be part of a cast of 1,500 people and 900 horses set to perform for Queen Elizabeth on the grounds of Windsor Castle on Sunday.

    Dubbed "Her Majesty's 90th Birthday Party," the show just outside London will highlight her lifelong love of horses.

    That's so sad. It costs between 800/1k pounds to fund just one hour of a police helicopter.

    These stories are proof there is no hope for humanity!

    Why are the Army helicopters about three times louder than the tourist or business ones. They fly up and down over the Hudson River here all the time and the difference in noise is tremendous.

    No Musical Ride here (I did once attend a performance at a country fair near Portland, Maine as mate's brother was part of the show - nice road trip), but at least we have this to look forward to on Monday:-

    RCMP bring canine training to Fredericton-area backyards
    Police dogs and their handlers will be training near homes, but police say citizens shouldn't be concerned

    Police dogs and their handlers will be conducting training exercises in Fredericton and New Maryland starting on May 16

    The RCMP's specialized dog handling unit is set to begin training canines in residential neighbourhoods to give officers and their four-legged partners a scent of real-life scenarios.

    The training is slated to start in the neighbourhoods of New Maryland,Oromocto and Fredericton on May 16.

    Sgt. Michel Litalien, the co-ordinator of the RCMP's Police Dog Services unit, said the training is something the Mounties feel adamant about.

    "Police dog handlers train with their canine partners on a daily basis, but it's also important for us to occasionally expand our exercises to include real-life situations in real neighbourhoods," said Litalien.

    Litalien said teams of eight to 10 police dog teams will begin training outside of local businesses and homes but the police say children and pets are free to go about their business while the dogs and officers are in the area.

    Exercises will be conducted mostly during the day but some night time work is required.

    Litalien said he feels in order for proper training they should be in scenarios they may face on a daily basis and citizens shouldn't be concerned.

    "You might see a police officer in a green uniform laying out a track in your backyard or on the property around your house or business, and then working through the tracking process with our dogs," says Litalien.

    If residents are concerned about training on their property they can just say so to police.

    "It's their house, their property and if they don't want us there, and they tell us, we move," said Litalien.

    He feels the teams have to work in residential areas because "break and enters don't happen in the middle of the woods."

    "It allows the dogs and their handlers to train where we work, and only takes about 45 minutes for each scenario, then we move on to another location."

    Mate, they
    Military grey. Single rotor ie not a Chinook. I did think one looked like a gun ship but despite reading all of Tom Clancy's novels, that as far as it goes. Will try and get pic next time.

    It's not that game mobile strike that seems to be advertised on the TV every 15 seconds?

    If it is, it's very realistic!
