Circling choppers

#1
I have been watching out of my office window 2 helicopters circling over what looks like Thamesmead / Woolwich. They were there for about 30 minutes. One was a Seaking, one a Lynx but there were too far away to tell who they belonged to.
So my question is, what would they have been up to ?
Given they were deffo military, surely they wouldnt be allowed to be doing anything "security" related, thats would be police aircraft surely ?
Does anyone know what Military aircraft are allowed to do in civilian airspace ?

This often happens. They are still searching for Woolwich Arsenal which vanished without trace around 1990. Nobody knows where it went. As to what they can do? Whatever the **** they want up Otterburn way. They often used to wave to my ex when she was sunbathing. But not to me. Because I have Death Ray Anti-Heicopter Eyes. Obviously.

Military aircraft are allowed to do anything in civilian airspace that civilian aircraft are allowed to do - and probably a bit more. Maybe they were helping the plod out on something - I am sure the plod dont actually have that many helicopters and certainly not of the "quite big" variety.

And if, as you say, it might have been security related then you are completely about-face. Remember the time "tanks" were sent to Heathrow? The police dont own "tanks". Security related is definately one time when you might see military helicopters. The Armed forces do security. The police do a funny old thing called policing (sometimes known as Law Enforcement).

I did wonder if they were up to something re the prison down that way.

I was under the impression military heleicopters wouldn't do "policing" tasks, i.e. looking for scrotes or keeping an eye on a demo, that sort of thing.
Does anyone know if they do actually help out dibble with stuff ?

Black Helicopters (BH) are not just helicopters with a black paint-job as you may have been told. They are, in fact, autonomous agents -- lifeforms -- created by New World Order (NWO) agencies via nanobiotechnology. Their primary purpose is to spy on the activities of average citizens in order to gather tactical information and discover "subversives" who are not bowing to the will of the Liberati's UN-backed Federal Government. Furthermore, when the NWO Invasion takes place in the not-too-distant future, they will round up citizens for internment in concentration camps or carry out the elimination of the more vocally anti-Liberati.
Now you've done it, do you ever listen to me? So in short they really are after him as I suspected.

If your question is would they routinely do police stuff then the answer is no. In a specific case, however, the answer could be yes. The Army has capabilities that cannot be replicated by the civilian services and sometimes we are called upon to assist.
