Choppers, believed to be from the SAS, have put on an extraordinary show of force over the skies of London in their top-of-the-range new anti-terror helicopters.

Elite forces were spotted flying over landmarks such as Big Ben, the Shard and the London Eye, during an apparent training exercise yesterday.

In the event of an attack, the UK’s elite fighting force will swoop into action on the £43million heli-plane which has been nicknamed the ‘Transformer’.

And the exercise came less than 24 hours after Islamic State widow Sally Jones issued a chilling warning to avoid visiting the capital this summer.

Choppers, believed to be from the SAS, have put on an extraordinary show of force over the skies of London in their top-of-the-range new anti-terror helicopters.

Elite forces were spotted flying over landmarks such as Big Ben, the Shard and the London Eye, during an apparent training exercise yesterday.

In the event of an attack, the UK’s elite fighting force will swoop into action on the £43million heli-plane which has been nicknamed the ‘Transformer’.

And the exercise came less than 24 hours after Islamic State widow Sally Jones issued a chilling warning to avoid visiting the capital this summer.

SAS troops on high alert to respond to a Paris-style strike in the UK are training to use the V22 Osprey at Stirling Lines in Credenhill, Herefordshire.

People in the capital were quick to spot the Ospreys as they roared above, with many taking to social media to comment on the awe-inspiring choppers.

It came a day after a British jihadi bride threatened London with a summer bombing campaign on the Underground.

Sally Jones taunted the public on Wednesday by tweeting: 'You all scare so easily... it only takes a few tweets, because you are pathetic England.'

The ISIS recruiter known as 'Mrs Terror' concluded the message with: 'But b4 I go, I just wanna say... have a nice summer.'

The 47-year-old provoked outrage when she wrote on social media: 'To be honest I wouldn't go into Central London through June... or even July.

'Well to be honest I wouldn't go there at all especially by Tube.'

She also tweeted: 'England... Boom' moments before she was suspended from Twitter by administrators.

Should such an attack ever occur, the Osprey, which is almost twice as fast as the SAS’s current fleet of transport helicopters and can carry at least 24 fully equipped personnel, will almost certainly see action.

With a top speed of 360mph it can deploy soldiers from Hereford to London in 30 minutes to bolster the SAS’s anti-terror squad which is permanently based in the capital, and to Manchester in about the same time.

The Osprey has machine guns installed in the nose and on the rear ramp. Its range is also much greater than transport helicopters currently in service.

It can fly for up to 1,000 miles or eight hours without refuelling, meaning that if terrorists launch strikes across the UK, the same aircraft could fly troops to several locations.

An SAS source told the Mail on Sunday last month: ‘This is an essential new piece of equipment for us which will make it much easier and faster for us to respond in the event of an attack.

'With its vertical take-off and landing capability we could fly directly from Hereford and land in any city, even in a confined space.’

While critics of the Osprey point to the aircraft’s poor safety record – 36 military personnel have been killed since its first test flight in the United States – it has performed well in trials with the SAS.

Soldiers have also parachuted from the Osprey and abseiled from it on to a building as part of a hostage rescue exercise.

The Osprey’s ability to perform as a helicopter and as a fixed-wing aircraft is due to proprotors – the name given to the three 19ft-long rotors attached to each wing.

It takes off like a conventional helicopter then the proprotors and engines rotate through 90 degrees to turn it into a fixed-wing aircraft.

The aircraft’s Rolls-Royce engines generate enough horsepower for the Osprey to climb at an impressive 36ft per second, making it a faster, more elusive target than a helicopter.

It can also fly at up to 26,000ft, thereby avoiding enemy missiles, while its carbon-fibre fuselage reduces the impact of bullets and rockets.

V-22 OSPREY AND ITS ACCIDENT HISTORY: 36 MILITARY PERSONNEL KILLED SINCE ITS FIRST TEST FLIGHT IN THE US

The V-22 Osprey has had a controversial history, with 36 military personnel killed since its first test flight in the United States.

During its testing phase from 1991 to 2000, it suffered four crashes resulting in 30 fatalities.

Since it became operational in 2007, six other soldiers have been killed while travelling in the aircraft.

One crash in 2012 in Morocco killed two Marines, while another saw the aircraft flip over at a Florida air base and injure all five aboard.

In 2014 a Marine drowned when bailing out of the aircraft after it lost power shortly after take-off from the USS Makin Island in the Persian Gulf.

And a downed Osprey during a training exercise in Hawaii in May 2015 saw two US Marines die after the aircraft exploded into flames.

But the aircraft – which can carry up to 36 troops or a small, specially designed fighting Growler vehicle - has performed well in trials with the SAS.

The small, fast transport plane is able to fly like an aeroplane, but can take off and land on ship decks and makeshift landing pads like a helicopter.

Would the be the same SAS that was busted in Iraq dressed up as Iraqis and setting roadside IEDs?
British special forces caught dressed as Arab 'terrorists'
"The Iraqi police were patrolling the area looking for suspected "terrorists" or "insurgents", and they noticed that the men were acting suspiciously. Suddenly, without warning, the suspicious men started shooting at people, but the new Iraqi security forces managed to capture some of them before they could escape. Obviously, if these men had not been caught, the mass media would now be reporting the incident as just another attempt by evil "terrorists" to create civil war in Iraq.

well, just like the so called real events 911 and 777 and Boston and...etc

Yeah, as part of an undercover mission.

The two heroes were arrested and imprisoned in September 2005 after they opened fire on Iraqi Police officers, killing one, after having been stopped at a roadblock.

The SAS's response? They turned up at the Al Jameat police station in Basra with "at least ten" tanks and a platoon of paratroopers, with a Predator drone flying overhead. A crowd gathered and began throwing stones and petrol bombs (a bit like the Muzzie kids do around here when you take your dog out for a walk) at the tanks, setting at least one ablaze. Three British soldiers were injured and, according to some reports, two demonstrators were killed. The British tanks then just flattened the entire police station as well as nearby cars, releasing the British prisoners as well as around 150 others.



On 25 December 2006, British troops again raided the Al Jameat station, killing seven gunmen and freeing 127 prisoners being held by Shia militias there. They then blew up the building. A British Army spokesman stated that the 127 prisoners freed had been tortured and that there were fears that they were about to be executed

British troops don't set IEDs.

yeah, so much for under cover
don't hide there

back to Iraq:
"Articles published by Michel Chossudovsky, Larry Chin and Mike Whitney at the Centre for Research on Globalization’s website on September 20, 2005 have offered preliminary assessments of the claims of Iraqi authorities that two British soldiers in civilian clothes who were arrested by Iraqi police in Basra on September 19—and in short order released by a British tank and helicopter assault on the prison where they were being held—had been engaged in planting bombs in the city"

the sunday harald links also appear at the global research article link, as do some other fine examples of "undercover" british bombers, blaming their handy work on others as an excuse to suppress the local peeps.

Just like Iraq never had anything to do with 911, couldn't nuke London in 40 minutes, and had no WMDs

The British "empire" have been using this divide and conquer tactic around the world since forever, it was the foundation of empire:
nothing has changed

Only in this case ( the OP) it would seem its the british peeps being trod upon...
and as Kissinger said about the tyrannical military industrial complex taking over:
"... It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government." -- Henry Kissinger speaking at Evian, France, May 21, 1992 Bilderburgers meeting. Unbeknownst to Kissinger, his speech was taped by a Swiss delegate to the meeting.
