    I think this has long been needed.

    It's overhead at the moment but hopefully nobody's trying to sleep or still asleep unless they're hungover

    I can't hear it at the Brixton end of Herne Hill :hmm:

    that's because it was over Brixton Hill and Brixton Road. It's gone now

    :D this thread.

    Still nothing over the skies of Herne Hill. Further bulletins as events warrant.

    yeah, but it'll mean the Brixton Chitter Chatter thread isn't full of "fucking helicopter keeping me awake again" posts ;)

    Good call on starting this thread.

    Always meant to say to you though that living right next door to a prison is the kind of place you'd expect to get more than usual heli traffic

    Well, not for my estate...all that will do is about three copter crashes a week on the hapless residents beneath....

    It was your suggestion ;)

    Actually, it's much quieter since they opened Belmarsh and moved all the IRA and other high cat prisoners there

    paint 'POLICE' on it and then vent your anger by flying it in to walls.

    Do you get points on this thread for taking pictures of the helicopter?
    I can see a whole new hobby coming out of this.

    Ohh, good idea. We can also note down the registration number(s) and see how many different ones are used over our heads.

    We have a hospital nearby, where they land the medivac helicopters, bringing in really hurt people from elsewhere in the province.

    It's a kid's hospital, so it usually means some really fucked up kid. There's usually two or three a day, at any time of the day or night. Last night, there was one about 3 am.

    By the time they're near our house, they're about 100 feet up or less.

    It's not that big a deal.

    Can we have one of those posters with the different types on for recognition purposes?*

    I'm also considering an urban fox thread. I seem to be hearing them more and more often, screeching and wailing.


    *I'm assuming there hasn't already been a pull-out in one of the Sunday papers.

    I think that what is actually required is a dedicated fox-copter which will be used to gun down all foxes in Brixton. Especially the ones in my back garden, jumping on all the plants and chewing through electical cables. Or perhaps the police copter could do this in between hunting down criminals. It would be good practise for the marksmen, and an efficient use of resources.

    Would you like a tropical island to go with it?

    Perhaps there could also be a victim support unit attached to the fox-copter unit equipped with gardners and electricians to replant, effectually fix any electric cables and spread tiger dung.

    There are certainly a lot of victims in need of support.

    That's the police that is! They're using foxes now to gather intelligence. They are equipped with miniature CCTV cameras and bluetooth devices capable of hacking into any laptop within 200m and downloading the entire harddrive as well as monitoring all your phone calls and e-mails. This is true.

    (It's not true actually - it's a pathetic attempt at satire. Just thought I'd get in first though ...)

    The ones in our back garden do have a penchant for electrical work. I don't know how one tells if they are brazilian though. Perhaps I will report them anyway.

    Are they wearing what appears to be an explosives-stuffed bomber jacket which, on closer inspection, turns out to be a denim jacket sans dynamite sticks and a wired alarm clock?

    Perhaps instead of cursing these immigrants to our urban idylls we should have them trained. Hone their rough and ready electrical skills into something more constructive. If you could also see your way to training a couple up to be plumbers and tilers I'd be much obliged.

    As well as bulky coats, did they jump over the fence?
