Sea King near BZN

Mornin,

Anybody know why there's a Sea King parked in a field just off the A40 not far from BZN this morning?

If it had parked just on the A40 it would have caused traffic flow problems...?

rolandpull,

that's exactly what my colleague said as we drove past it, the other suggestion was that we'd found a new use for our old cabs as some kind of bat/bird/fieldmouse habitats, but i presume there's a more rational explanation out there somewhere.

With the handing over of UK Security PLC to the French I suppose this is semi apt.
