Strange helicopter over Bruges today

Recommended Posts

Hello all 

A friend is currently in Bruges. when at about 4pm UK time today she spotted a chopper with a large underslung load consisting of a large hexagonal frame, about twice as big as the aircraft. She did send a photo but it is of such poor quality it is not with posting. Nothing was showing on flightradar24 at the time. any ideas?

Did some searching and it seems that it's flying along the Belgian coast, measuring the salinity of the groundwater. It's part of this project http://www.topsoil.eu/. I'm guessing Danish company SkyTEM is doing the flights.

It sounds as if it's this one:

When I worked for a watersupply company we had some cooperation with this.

Well I never....you live and learn, that is something I have never seen before and I probably never will see it in the flesh but interesting nonetheless.
