Rainy Helicopter Day

The February 2016 mini beano. A yellow Met Office warning for wind and rain. Asda Full English where it’s scrambled egg. Costa Coffee to watch the rain and a very friendly welcome from the International Helicopter Museum.

        If it’s any consolation it’s a cold wet day here in Yorkshire, so staying warm and dry indoors this afternoon!

    Glad it was indoors Rog! Was the bell helicopter the one the US used in Vietnam? Looks similar to me…
