What's Happening In Birmingham, UK Right Now?

Thu Aug 23, 2012 6:43 pm

Hi folks. Just out in Birmingham (UK) city centre right now & there's lots of helicopter activity going on (counted 14 so far). They seem to be doing circuits of the centre & flying in loose formation. Are these police looking for someone / something? Anybody out there know? Thanks for any info.

I think it could be some kind of "Art". I searched Twitter and found this https://twitter.com/eprjcts/status/238702502290280448/photo/1

14 helicopters chasing someone? No way. In England, each county has at most 1 police heli, some even share!
If the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, 'This was their finest hour.'

They have a string quartet playing from helicopters as part of an opera. God knows what they were thinking, its been going for a few days now including the practice runs:
