Four days ago I was visiting friends in Hasting (UK) and a young man (17) was stabbed to death about a hundred yards from my friends house. This is a rare crime for the area.

Link to a bbc report. I hate the Blatently Biased Corporation

Although I didnt know why there was so much police activity outside I did notice a chinook helicopter arrived at the same time as the police, it hovered over the crime area for about a minute then left.

The police do not use chinooks, but there is an army base at Lydd about 12 miles away where these copters can be seen flying.

I am now wondering what this chinook was upto. It only hovered, it did not appear to track anyone. So I'm wondering if it took some kind of snapshot of the area and if so what it used to do this. Could it have been some kind of xray device?

The local police have their own copter but instead a military copter appeared. The police have even named their investigation "Operation chinook"

Anyone know what spying devices are on chinooks?
I'm worried that we may have all been xrayed with some military strength device.

In general Chinooks are pretty hollow for troop transport. Heavy lifters.

They could have ANYTHING in there

I think the most likely thing is that the police helicopter needed maintenence or something and the police called the military to borrow a helicopter to scan the area

They can have anything in that chopper, normally carry's troops. Are you saying the cops and the chopper were there investigating your friends death or something else?

Maybe it was the closest chopper around and they thought they wear going to need a medic pick up? Or maybe something deeper

A chinook would not have been able to get near enough for a pickup, this is a heavily built up area and on a steep slope too.

I hope it was just an innocent use but I cant think of one other than scanning in some way.

That's correct "troop transport." I don't know that much about racial tensions in the UK, but perhaps you were seeing a practice session, a dry run, for a Chinook bring police, reinforcements, to a problem area. Once the riots start, standard police busses will not be getting through the barricades. The miitary will be called forth to provide the 'choppeers and armoured vehicles to burst and fly over the barricades and getting the police (and troops into the fray. In other words, you were seeing a beginning of the joining of the civilian police with the might of the military. Expect to see more of it. Is that bad? Not necessarily, it merely points up the seriousness of the coming times.

It sounds pretty strange... But Chinooks don't have to land... You can unload on a 45 degree slope..

Unlikely it was anything like Xray equipment because it won't work through the aluminium shell of any sort of aeroplane and would need sooooooooooooomuch power to get to the ground all the crew on the Chinook would be fried in seconds.Read through 20 pages of Google and no other mention of operation Chinook than this one......

i see chinooks all the time...in fact some flew over my house today while i was sitting outside....aaaahhhh love the sound of them!!

while i am a lover of choppers, i see it as literally no big deal. they must train and fly around.

really. i doubt it was anything conspiratorial

I actually worded it wrong,I meant apart from this one the only other mention is the one in Bedfordshire.Every single news paper and news website across the country mentions this one.

As many have posted the chinook is essentially a hollow troop transport that could Cary anything of the right shape within its weight restrictions
However the chinook does have a central hatch on the floor about a meter square, there for winching fast ropeing and abseiling and many other things
Just sayin lol

But isn't lydd part of a military range complex
Just looked online and yes
Hythe and lydd range complex
Knew I knew it from somewhere 2 range complexes built just outside of these two neighbouring towns
I recall using the urban combat range there
And a couple of nights in Folkestone
( think it was anyway )
A very busy range complex and gurkhas I think stationed near there
So a lot of military traffic in the area

Used to go to Lydd every weekend (up to about 5 years ago) and even then the firing ranges were still active a lot of the time,even extending the no-go area when the red flags were flying quite some way out into the sea.

I grew up in Lydd and as a child the ranges were a wonderful place to play, though dangerous
When the troops used to train for their stint in Ireland gangs of kids were allowed in to run riot to help with the training. Thunder flashes were amazing especialy when they put them under a dustbin or something. I remember seeing an oil barrel take off like a rocket. Not much health and safety back then

I bet it was you who spoilt my fishing, and I was just about to catch the big one too.
That lake used to be three lakes. One was good for carp, another small lake known as joes pond was excelent for pike fishing and the other was good for everything else.
