Lynx at Rochester Today doing Loop's

Just had the great pleasure of watching a Lynx at around 3.30pm doing a display at Rochester Airport, I think for the benefit of BAE systems staff.

First time I have seen in the flesh Barrel Roll's and Loops, a great sight a friend took some pics with a telephoto so will endeavour to post a couple when he mails them through.

Does anyone know who the pilot is and I assume its a militrary craft ?

Are you sure it wasn't a radio controlled model?
Surely real helicopters can't do loops without the tails being chopped off!


This looks very real,



Until you realise it is this

Keith Bryan!!! He is surely relaxing and enjoying a quiet Pims on his estate these days. None of that crazy upside down stuff....or am I mistaken?
