What the hell was that all about? We'll have to get Limey to translate.

Helicopter pilot lands to ask for directions in Kazakhstan

16 February 2017 Last updated at 17:15 GMT

A lorry driver has captured the moment a military pilot landed on a Kazakhstan highway to ask for help after getting lost.

He asked the way to the north-western city of Aktobe, to the amusement of two lorry drivers in radio communication.

The Ministry of Defence said the pilot had been taking part in a visual orientation exercise when he lost his bearings.
BBC Link

First rule of air navigation.

A pilot is never lost, although he may be temporarily uncertain of his position.

This is an RAF Atlas transport aircraft on a low flying exercise in the 'Mach Loop' in West Wales.
It's in between the C-130 Hercules and C-17 Globemaster in size and capability but nimble enough to fly in confined areas at low altitude.



One such aircraft paid a visit to Scott AFB, Illinois, and gave some USAF personnel a flight around the area.
The video isn't very exciting but worth a look if only to see the spectacularly bad editing.
On the return to Scott, and about half a mile from touchdown,(listen to the altitude alerts) the aircraft is suddenly shown as flying over open country in a left hand turn before returning to the approach and the 100' call!

OK, here's one more.

The route is also used by the USAF and other NATO Air Forces.

Here's a USAF CV-22 Osprey making a visit at a fairly sedate pace.

Well there is the taxpayer part, but I also worked on early flight controls for that between degrees back in the Neutron Jack days..
