  2. A chopper flying past a 500' caused that damage? They're having a laugh, absolutely no f*cking chance.
  3. I think they saw their chance to get a new conservatory after all the high winds earlier this summer.

    Either that, or it was a pretty sh*t conservatory.

    From the Daily Wail link
    Must be a slow news day for the Wail to be reporting a contested insurance claim with its origins over three years ago.

    The MoD? Just guessing mind.
  11. There's always one funny cnut :thumright:
  12. I didnt know you could get male au pair! gay cnuts!
  13. Anyone that can assess an aircrafts height as being 500' purely by eye must have a unique gift!
    Could it possibly be that the owner of the house, being wealthy, travels a lot by civvie chopper, and as they more often than not cruise at 500', he decided on that figure when lodging his compensation claim?
    Oops! Being cynical again ...............

    Exactly, I think the MoD are fairly safe in their defence, even given that the RADALT was duff it will be a simple matter of producing the ATC and barometric input data to the ADR in court, a few sums with regard to rotor downwash and bye bye insurance "claim"....................... oh here are your court costs . I reckon a 500' hover would produce a mere breeze, probably disturb a hair or two. If you are that way inclined a "simplified" way of working it out, but you need some thrust figures
  15. It wouldnt if I was under it, I got no hair for it to disturb.
  16. I reckon it is odds on favourite for the MOD to settle out of court.

    I am sure the pratt who owns the building probably knows someone high up and will get strings pulled
