CH47 and Super Puma Low altitude flying over Rotterdam

Hey guys,

Near my neighbourhood two heli's are flying at a low altitude over the Maas and over the city, are these naval exercises or preparing for the visit of a state head?

cheers

They do this quite regularly - they are practicising low insertion techniques in built up areas. Its a training thing. I work in Wilhelminaplein so watched the Wokka come past almost at window level on one of the passes. Ramp down, no messing. They've stopped now due to the mad thunderstorm!
