Quite the opposite, you chopper.

Unbelievably quiet up there

Seen one plane all week and that was a big RAF transporter doing ‘training’ of some sort

No helicopters, two planes noticed over the last couple days

On Thursday night’s Channel 4 News had a shot of the Shard lit up in blue from a helicopter, just after the 8 PM applause. I could see that helicopter in the distance.

1-0 helicopters

2-1 to the planes.

And now a proper plane overhead, seemingly on its way to Heathrow.

Yer man here, doing the old aerial photography, I believe.
