Army Helicopter XX378

This Westland SA-341B Gazelle was on the playing fields of St Edward's School this morning, not sure why it was at the School?  The Gazelle is one of the fastest helicopters ever built with a top speed of 310km per hour, it has been used by all of the three branches of the British Armed Forces, first seeing combat action in the Falkland Islands conflict.

Probably dropped in to give an information (recruitment) talk at the school.
Gazelle really nice, used to fly in them in Northern Ireland in the 70's .
