Pilots of the PSNI police helicopter unit have admitted ‘flying around Newry & south Armagh at night just to annoy those who are trying to sleep’.
Instead of picking off society’s criminals with a machine gun as many would believe, its pilots have revealed that they just fly around for fun.
One pilot told Newry Spud:
“Yeah, we love just flying around to keep people awake. I had someone push in front of me in the queue at Five Ways two days ago. I found out where they lived, jumped in my chopper last night and then hovered over their house for two hours.
I could see through my infra-red camera that his dog was going mental so I stayed there for a little bit longer, just to annoy him. He won’t be pushing in front of me in Five Ways again, wanker.”
