I see them a lot too. There are a couple of bases near me though.

this may account for the helicopter flights flight training for twin rotor pilots over populated areas and sea ,

The mysterious morning landings of chinook helicopters in the middle of a city park has been solved.

For much of this week, Cardiff residents had noticed helicopters flying overhead and landing in the park in Bute Park, Cathays, before flying off almost immediately.

Twitter user Heather Jones spotted the choppers landing in the park, asking yourcardiff: “any idea why for 3 days in the past week, chinook helicopters have flown over Cardiff City Centre & landed in Bute Park?!”, joined by fellow eagle-eyed tweeter Tom Foggin who said: “Just saw an army chinook take off from Bute park… what the hell??”

But the riddle of the phantom Chinooks was solved this morning, when the RAF and Cardiff council confirmed the helicopters were taking part in training exercises for pilots.

An RAF spokesman said: “This is just purely routine training flights to get pilots used to landing in densely populated areas.

“The operations are used to get pilots used to identifying the safest ways of operating in that sort of environment as they are required to do in places like Afghanistan.”

I live about a mile away from RAF Leeming. There was a fair bit of Chinook activity in the area on Saturday. Additionally, when driving home tonight at about 4.45pm, two Chinooks flew over me quite low on finals. One was carrying a load slung underneath. Not sure of course if these have a connection with your sighting, but there is a fair bit of Chinook activity right now.

hmm, i don't think people would be alarmed by something so 'routine'. they'd be familiar with it.
