Attention Gwenters.....

Post by DAC_ »

Every Monday night, for the past 6 months, a couple of Helicopters fly low from from East to West at about approximately 00.30 to 01.30 - I presume they are coming from the Test/Exercise Range in Chepstow - does anyone know where they are going?

Haven't a clue. I've seen a lot of tanks being shipped through Brynglas recently though. Perhaps we're trying to take Pembroke back and return it to Carmarthen massive. Splitters.

:lol:

Have you heard them though, every Monday? It's probably Mark Drakeford getting a lift back from London.

It's definitely not the Police chopper, it's has a larger engine.

They are back again DAC.

They come in low, out of the rising sun and about a mile out they put on the music.
