Today at about 3pm GMT I saw a low flying lynx helicopter, it was in green / grey cammo with skids.
Westland Lynx - Wikipedia
So what, you maybe thinking?
1. It was flying below cloud level during a snow storm, I checked with my local civilian airfield and the cloud base was about 290 feet.
2. It was flying following a main road at about only 30mph.
3. It was within 100 meters of an urban area.
4. I have lived in the area for 11 years and I have never seen a lynx before.
I couldn't see the road from where I was so I don't know if the pilot was using it for navigation or if the helicopter was following a vehicle.
There is an RAF base about 20 miles away which is used by special forces but they normally travel in a Chinook which flies high.
I couldn't understand why it was flying so low in the snow.
Did anyone else see it?
Do you think it was significant?
