Choppers in the car park


If you live near or regularly pass by the Excel centre in the Royal Docks you will be used to seeing a variety of sights connected with events taking place there – this can range from boats, to cartoon characters to animals and more.

Well this week it was the turn of helicopters – arriving to take part in the Helitech show running from today until Thursday.

Due to the size of some of the exhibits it was easier to fly them to the show rather than bringing them by road and to facilitate this the dockside car park at the Eastern end of the Excel campus was turned into a temporary heliport.

Whilst most of the helicopters will be inside one of the exhibition halls a few will remain outside during the week.
