Military helicopter NH90 comes to town

This morning (Monday 11 March 2019) many people watched as a military NH90 helicopter hovered low for quite some time over the village. Some speculate it was a training exercise, others that they were looking for marijuana crops. We haven’t been able to find any definitive information.

The helicopter had its doors open, and at one point seemed to haul something up and onboard.
